Here you can access different disease networks created with Bayesian Direct Multimorbidity Maps (BDMM). For detailed description of methodology and results, please see our paper*. The networks on the right side were created by Cytoscape (version 3.2.1). In general, all of them contains the whole network computed with BDMM. Moreover, we included different depression focused networks which contains depression and its neighbors in maximum 2 edge distance. To have a glance over a subset of disorders the selection boxes below serve as a filtering tool of our 'Biobank network' (referred as 'full' network in the paper). Choose the disorders grouped by high level ICD-10 categories and push the 'Show results' button. The connections between the chosen disorders will be displayed below.
Zooming is enabled by using the scroll wheel. The whole network can be moved by clicking the left mouse button anywhere inside the gray area (except on the nodes). By holding the left mouse button on a node, the selected node can be moved. In addition, by selecting a node (with left mouse button click) the name of the given node and its neighbors will be listed on the right of the network. For the filtered graph representation we applied the JavaScript Infovis Toolkit (see here) and the jQuery UI MultiSelect Widget (see here).

Network Description
Biobank network Multimorbid network containing disorders in the UK Biobank dataset based on the face to face interviews.
Biobank restricted network Multimorbid network containing disorders in the UK Biobank dataset based on the face to face interviews. In depressed patients, disorders occurring after depression were filtered.
Separate depression Depression network with the depression variables computed based on Smith et. al. together with those who reported depression during the face to face interviews.
Merged depression A merged depression variable based on Smith et. al.
