10 Pathways4Life: Crowdsourcing Pathway Modeling from Published Figures
Awaiting Funder
June 9, 2015  —  A wealth of novel pathway information is trapped in published figures. This information, if properly modeled would be immensely useful for analyzing and interpreting large-scale omics datasets. Aligned with the broader BD2K initiative, this proposal sets out to transform the wealth of information...
86 Rephetio: Repurposing drugs on a hetnet
Report published
Welcome to project Rephetio. We aim to predict the probability that a given approved small molecule will treat a given complex disease. First, we construct a hetnet for drug repurposing. The network integrates 29 public resources and contains 47 thousand nodes (of 11 types) and 2.3 million edges ...
8 Microbial resistance to disinfectants in animal shelters
