Neo4j Online Meetup #32: How Project Rephetio used Neo4j to predict drug repurposing

30 Nov, 2017



This meetup will explore Hetionet (https://neo4j.het.io), a public Neo4j database that encodes biomedical knowledge. Hetionet v1.0 contains 47,031 nodes of 11 types and 2,250,197 relationships of 24 types. Project Rephetio applied Hetionet to predict new uses for existing compounds, an act called drug repurposing. We’ll discuss the Cypher implementation of the algorithms used for relationship prediction on hetnets (networks with multiple node and relationship types).
