Integrative analysis for finding genes and networks involved in diabetes and other complex diseases

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We have developed an integrative analysis method combining genetic interactions, identified using type l diabetes genome scan data, and a high-confidence human protein interaction network. Resulting networks were ranked by the significance of the enrichment of proteins from interacting regions. We identified a number of new protein network modules and novel candidate genes/ proteins for type 1 diabetes. We propose this type of integrative analysis as a general method for the elucidation of genes and networks involved in diabetes and other complex diseases.
