A web-app to explore common diseases

We have developed a web application that allows interactive exploration of a network of common diseases. The edges between the common diseases are based on similarity of the phenotypic profiles of the two diseases. If the similarity exceeds a threshold, we draw an edge, otherwise not. The similarity is calculated using the Human Phenotype Ontology.


The application is available at http://compbio.charite.de/CDN/cdn.html
