CIDeR: multifactorial interaction networks in human diseases

Genome Biol. 2012 Jul 18;13(7):R62. doi: 10.1186/gb-2012-13-7-r62.


The pathobiology of common diseases is influenced by heterogeneous factors interacting in complex networks. CIDeR is a publicly available, manually curated, integrative database of metabolic and neurological disorders. The resource provides structured information on 18,813 experimentally validated interactions between molecules, bioprocesses and environmental factors extracted from the scientific literature. Systematic annotation and interactive graphical representation of disease networks make CIDeR a versatile knowledge base for biologists, analysis of large-scale data and systems biology approaches.
