The Disease Maps Project is designed as a large-scale community effort. It is a network of groups that work together in order to better understand disease mechanisms. The project exchanges best practices, share information, develop tools to make it easier for all the involved groups to achieve their goals.

Here we share resources and best practices to develop a disease map for COVID-19. The project is progressing as a broad community-driven effort. We aim to establish a knowledge repository on virus-host interaction mechanisms specific to the SARS-CoV-2. The COVID-19 Disease Map is an assembly of molecular interaction diagrams established based on literature evidence.
An exploration on gene expression data was carried out on single-cell RNAseq analyses of bronchoalveolar lavages from nine COVID-19 patients, three moderate cases, one severe case and five critical cases (GSE145826) (doi: 10.1038/s41591-020-0901-9). To these data, single-cell RNA-sequencing from one COVID-19 lung biopsy, ~10 weeks after initial infection was added to represent persistent severe COVID19 patient group (3 weeks after symptom onset) (GSE163919). For this analysis, the epithelial cell ...
Scope: The COVID-19 disease can have gastrointestinal manifestation. The virus replicates in the gut and has potential faecal-oral transmission besides airborne transmission (Lamers et al., 2020). Intestinal organoids are a proven experimental model of the human gut and can help understand the viral infection of the gut without animal models and additional biopsies. Single-cell RNA-seq techniques can distinguish the SARS-CoV-2 replicating cells and thus help to understand how cells respond to the ...
In this study, we developed an automated and reproducible workflow for transcriptomics data analysis using network biology approaches. The analyses are fully automated in R with clusterProfiler and RCy3 to connect to the widely adopted network analysis software Cytoscape including the CyTargetLinker app for network extension. For demonstration, we use a publicly available dataset from Blanco-Melo et al., GSE147507 obtained from GEO. After pre-processing with DESeq2, the dataset contains log2 fold ...
