OrphaMine: Data Mining Platform for Orphan Diseases
Keywords: Bioinformatics, data mining, biology, health, data visualization, drug development.
The OrphaMine platform enables visualization, data integration and in-depth analytics in the domain of “orphan diseases”, where data is extracted from the OrphaData ontology (http://www.orpha.net/consor/cgi-bin/index.php). At present, we aim at building a true collaborative portal that will serve different actors: (i) a general visualization of OrphaData data for physicians working, maintaining and developing this knowledge database about orphan diseases. (ii) the integration of analytics (data mining) algorithms developed by the different academic actors. (iii) the use of these algorithms to improve our general knowledge of rare diseases.
