A disease / disorder relationships explorer and a sample of a map-oriented scientific work. It uses the Human Disease Network dataset and allows intuitive knowledge discovery by mapping its complexity. The Human Disease Network (official) dataset, a poster of the data and related book (Biology - The digital era, ISBN: 978-2-271-06779-1) are available.
This kind of data has a network-like organization, and relations between elements are at least as important as the elements themselves. More data could be integrated to this prototype and could eventually bring closer phenotype and genotype.
Results should be visual, but also printable. Creating posters can enhance collaborative work. It facilitates discussion and sharing of ideas about the data. This website initiative is an invitation to think about the benefits of networks exploration but above all it tries to outline future designs of scientific information systems.
