This workflow highlights the functionality of KNIME for exploring, analyzing, and visualizing life science data related to diseases
For a disease, such as Maple Syrup Urine Disease, the associated genes in the OMIM database are displayed in a sunburst chart. Moreover, interactions of the proteins encoded by the disease-associated genes were shown in the same chart.
Then, the network of disease genes and their interaction partners are displayed. The next step reveals the network of disease genes and their interaction partners. One can filter the node degree (the number of connections a node has to other nodes) using a range slider.
Information about the nodes themselves is also displayed in the table below. Selected genes in the network or in the table are subsequently used to query information from the biomedical literature that is stored in the database PubMed.
The titles and abstracts of the resulting papers are displayed. Frequent terms in these documents are then presented in a tag cloud.
