• MELODI is a hypothesis generator. It identifies enriched overlapping objects which have been assigned to scientific literature and uses these to derive intermediate mechanisms.
  • The underlying annotation objects used for the analysis are semantic predications from the Semantic MEDLINE Datatabase (SemMedDB) and Medical Subject Headings (MeSH).
  • Please read the About page to find out more about how to use the application and click on the blue information button at the top of any page for more information.
  • Data are stored and investigated using a graph.
