The disease associations are derived via automatic text mining of the biomedical literature and have not been manually verified. The confidence of each association is signified by stars, where ★★★★☆ is the highest confidence and ★☆☆☆☆ is the lowest.
Each disease–gene association is based on a text-mining score, which is proportional to 1) the absolute number of comentionings and 2) the ratio of observed to expected comentionings (i.e. the enrichment). These scores are normalized to z-scores by comparing them to a random background. This is represented by stars, each star corresponding to two standard deviations above the mean of the background distribution.
