Research Relevance and Potential Impact

Protein-protein interaction (PPI) networks provide a global picture of cellular function and

biological processes. A better understanding of PPIs could reveal the molecular mechanism

of processes leading to diseases such as cancer and diabetes which are common in the UAE.

The project has important significance to UAE as the published results in reputable journals

will put UAE at the forefront of bioinformatics innovation. The outcome of the research work is

highly encouraging and the UAE will leverage in future projects with a vision to make significant

contributions to medicine and healthcare.
