The DisGeNET Cytoscape App is designed to visualize, query and analyse a network representation of the gene-disease associations in DisGeNET. The DisGeNET Cytoscape App uses the current version (5.0) of the DisGeNET database. In the App, gene-disease networks, disease-disease networks, and gene-gene networks are generated.
The App assists the user in the interpretation and exploration of human complex diseases with respect to their genetic origin by a variety of built-in functions. Using the DisGeNET Cytoscape App you can perform queries restricted to
(i) the original data source
(ii) the association type
(iii) the disorder class of interest
(iv) specific diseases or genes
(v) a score range
**Important notice! The first time to run the app, go to *Configure DisGeNET database* in the app menu, and choose *local database*. This will proceed to download the sqlite database. Then, restart the app**
