About OCDD

Obesity is a medical condition that is known for increasing the risk factor of many other diseases that are also known as obesity co-morbid diseases. Several studies have investigated the co-morbidity of obesity and other diseases including different types of cancers. Obesity and Co-morbid Diseases Database (OCDD) is designed for relating obesity and its co-morbid diseases from literature mining, computational and system biology approaches. The degree of co-morbid associations have been measured and made available to users. The main objective of the database is to derive the relations between genes that are involved in both obesity and its co-morbid diseases. Functional annotation of common genes, gene interaction networks and key driver analyses made the database a valuable and comprehensive resource for investigating the causal links between obesity and co-morbid diseases.
