Diseases and phenotypes
Phenotype information has been extracted from OMIM.
The OMIM morbid map file is remediated to standardize phenotype names. In
addition, simple phenotype clustering is implemented using similar
text/character strings. For example, the multiple entries for Alzheimer's
disease subtypes are merged into one phenotype based on the text string
"Alzheimer". The purpose of this simple phenotype clustering is to capture as
much relevant genetic information on the phenotype as possible. Users
have the ability to deconstruct phenotype clusters during the prediction
process if desired. Users can also insert their own phenotypes if it is
currently not used.
