Disease-gene associations mined from literature

DISEASES is a weekly updated web resource that integrates evidence on disease-gene associations from automatic text mining, manually curated literature, cancer mutation data, and genome-wide association studies. We further unify the evidence by assigning confidence scores that facilitate comparison of the different types and sources of evidence.
