Integrating EMR: Integration of electronic medical records with a biomedical knowledge network to predict medical outcomes

BioData West: Day 1 @ 15:40

Systems biology approaches to determine the cell-specific gene regulatory potential of genetic associations in complex diseases

  • Genetic association studies identify risk DNA variants but fall short of providing a biological context
  • How UCSFe integrated GWAS data with regulatory information from ENCODE and REP and built cell-specific biological risk networks
  • How UCSF employed this approach to create individualized cell-specific risk networks to characterize risk in more than 2000 patients
