This bot is part of a family of bots to capture and maintain Genes, Diseases and Drugs in Wikidata. Originally started with the [] where Genes and Proteins were added to Wikidata, the project gradually evolved in adding Diseases, Drugs and the relationships between the three.
According to the UMLS National Drug File,
This part of the bot will first aggregate drug<>disease links and then add these links to the appropriate Wikidata items.
- Define properties required for gene<>drug links
- Request the required properties and put them to community discussion
- Code bot
- Test runs in increments
https://github.com/olegursu/drugtarget (which has both indication and target information)
\--drugDiseaseAssociation +--exacerbates +--increasesRiskOfDisease +--causes (the disease results from taking the drug) +--prevents \--treats treats (aka 'medical condition treated') +--treatsCauseOfDisease +--treatsSymptomOfDisease
- drug used for treatment inverse of 'treats': drug used for treatment (P2176)
- disease has cause drug: inverse of 'causes': has cause (P828)
The bot will add new drug<>disease links in its source databases to Wikidata. It will also modify existing Wikidata drug and disease items if new information becomes available in the original data sources.
