Developing predictive molecular maps of human disease through community-based modeling

Nat Genet. 2012 Jan 27;44(2):127-30. doi: 10.1038/ng.1089.


The inability to identify the molecular causes of disease has led to a disappointing rate of development of new medicines. By combining the power of community-based modeling with broad access to large datasets on a platform that promotes reproducible analyses, we can work toward more predictive molecular maps that can deliver better therapeutics.
