The disease biomarkers can help make accurate diagnosis and therefore give appropriate interventions. In the past years, the accumulation of various kinds of 'omics' data, e.g. genomics and transcriptomics, makes it possible to identify disease biomarkers in a more efficient way. In particular, the molecular networks that describe the functional relationships among molecules enable the identification of disease biomarkers from a systematic perspective. In this paper, we surveyed the recent… CONTINUE READING
