My lab is looking to apply a new computational technique to some diseases with high unmet need.
I've found however, that trying to establish what diseases have high unmet need on a systematic level is very difficult.
No matter where I look I cant seem to find a database that has.
Disease \t Prevalence \t Mortality \t (any bonus data)
Does anyone have any ideas for how to find this. Id like to end up with a way to rank the diseases so that either ones with large patient populations or ones with small patient populations but terrible quality of life or high mortality can be identified.
Any ideas would be super helpful, as I could then cross this list with OMIM and get genes for each....and start the road down to some good science of course.
