  5. Introduction

    Advances in translational bioinformatics facilitate revealing the landscape of complex disease mechanisms

    Advances of high-throughput technologies have rapidly produced more and more data from DNAs and RNAs to proteins, especially large volumes of genome-scale data. However, connection of the genomic information t...
