As of December 2005, this list Principal findings: We derived a network of complex diseases (n = 54) and complex disease genes (n = 349) to explore thedistinct disease-specific functional modules. We find that essential contained 1,284 disorders and 1,777 disease genes. OMIM initiallyhuman genes are likely to encode hub proteins and are expressed shared genetic architecture of complex diseases. We evaluated the centrality measures of complex disease genes in focused on monogenic disorders but in recent years has expanded comparison with essential and monogenic disease genes in the human interactome. The complex disease network showedwidely in most tissues. This suggests that disease genes also would to include complex traits and the associated genetic mutations thatplay a central role in the human interactome. In contrast, we find that that diseases belonging to the same disease class do not always share common disease genes. A possible explanation could confer susceptibility to these common disorders (18). Although thisthe vast majority of disease genes are nonessential and show no history introduces some biases, and the disease gene record is far be that the variants with higher minor allele frequency and larger effect size identified using GWAs constitute disjoint partstendency to encode hub proteins, and their expression pattern indi- from complete, OMIM represents the most complete and up-to- of the allelic spectra of similar complex diseases.
