Abstract

In today's world, we are surrounded by systems that generate vast amounts of data. Consequently, there is an increasing gap between the data generated and the actual usable information extracted from it. We provide new software solutions to address this problem, focusing on the integration of biological and medical data. We developed a megNetr software platform that affords the fusing of heterogeneous lifescience and medical data and their visualisation. We demonstrate the software platform utility by integrating imaging and metabolomics data in a case study of patients carrying the Lamin A/C mutation which causes dilated cardiomyopathy.
