A Comparative Analysis of Phenotypes Derived from Genes or Biomedical Literature in COVID-19 [chapter]

Sophie Steenson, Christopher Hawthorne, Guillermo Lopez-Campos
2022 Studies in Health Technology and Informatics  
Using an "in-house" developed script we retrieved gene annotations and identified phenotype enrichments. Human Phenotype Ontology terms were retrieved from the literature using the Onassis R package.  ...  Since the emergence of SARS-CoV-2 in November 2019, there has been an exponential production of literature due to worldwide efforts to understand the interactions between the virus and the human body.  ...  GAPAL analyses ultimately generated a list of genes and "gene-derived" phenotypes based on the Human Phenotype Ontology enrichments.  ...
