In recent years, there is a tremendous growth in large scale data on human proteins, their interactions, and their relations to diseases. These allow for the first time a systems-level analysis of the molecular basis of disease. In my talk I will describe several recent works in this direction, aiming to uncover novel disease proteins and their underlying pathways with implications to diagnosis and therapy.
