How can diseases be added to an interpretation project?

Diseases can easily be added when a new interpretation project is created.

1) After selecting “Add interpretation”, a new window will appear.

2) In the pop-up window, a new link “select” is available.

3) Once clicked, the Disease Ontology tree opens to select a disease.

This disease tree can be searched or alternatively, you can start typing the respective disease name. The list of matching disorders are then immediately highlighted in the list.

TIPs:

– You can bookmark regularly selected diseases by clicking the “star” icon next to the disease.

– In cases where several diseases should be selected simultaneously, hold CTRL (MAC: ?cmd) while selecting several diseases.

For detailed instructions please refer to the Operation Manual Section 3.11.3.
