  1. A large number of long intergenic non-coding RNAs (lincRNAs) are linked to a broad spectrum of human diseases. The disease association with many other lincRNAs still remain as puzzle. Validation of such links ...

    Authors: Ashis Kumer Biswas, Dongchul Kim, Mingon Kang, Chris Ding and Jean X. Gao
    Citation: BMC Medical Genomics 2017 10(Suppl 5):77
  2. Prediction of drug-disease interactions is promising for either drug repositioning or disease treatment fields. The discovery of novel drug-disease interactions, on one hand can help to find novel indictions f...

    Authors: Guangsheng Wu, Juan Liu and Caihua Wang
    Citation: BMC Medical Genomics 2017 10(Suppl 5):79
  3. Recent advances in omics technologies have raised great opportunities to study large-scale regulatory networks inside the cell. In addition, single-cell experiments have measured the gene and protein activitie...

    Authors: Jiangyong Wei, Xiaohua Hu, Xiufen Zou and Tianhai Tian
    Citation: BMC Medical Genomics 2017 10(Suppl 5):72
  4. Accurately predicting pathogenic human genes has been challenging in recent research. Considering extensive gene–disease data verified by biological experiments, we can apply computational methods to perform a...

    Authors: Xiangxiang Zeng, Ningxiang Ding, Alfonso Rodríguez-Patón and Quan Zou
    Citation: BMC Medical Genomics 2017 10(Suppl 5):76
  5. Similar diseases are always caused by similar molecular origins, such as diasease-related protein-coding genes (PCGs). And the molecular associations reflect their similarity. Therefore, current methods for ca...
