Speaker(s): Prof. Doron Lancet.

Brief Description:Human diseases are disposed at the heart of extensive research that encompasses genomics, bioinformatics, systems biology and systems medicine. Some of the challenges facing disease bioinformatics are disease nomenclature, standard symbols (as for genes), and integration of information from diverse sources. A most important issue to be tackled is generating a global view of gene- disease relationships. This is relatively straightforward for the monogenic diseases, natural human knockouts that constitute a rich source of biological insight....
