The Disease Maps Project is a large-scale community effort build on a network of scientific and clinical groups that exchange best practices, share information and develop systems biomedicine tools. The project aims for an integrated, highly curated and user-friendly platform for disease-related knowledge. The primary focus of disease maps is on interconnected signaling, metabolic and gene regulatory network pathways represented in standard formats.

The 4th Disease Maps Community Meeting (DMCM2019) will take place in October, 2nd-4th, in Sevilla, Spain, hosted by the Clinical Bioinformatics Area, FPS, Hospital Virgen del Rocio.

Afternoon discussion sessions

Afternoon breakout discussion sessions are planned following the example of the 2nd Disease Maps Community Meeting in Luxembourg.
