Network-based approaches offer a robust means of investigating, modeling, and characterizing molecular mechanisms and gene modules in genotype-to-phenotype associations. Over the past decade, significant advancements in disease classification, drug repositioning, and treatment response prediction have been achieved through the application of systems biology. The emergence of multi-omics techniques, single-cell techniques, and artificial intelligence presents unprecedented opportunities, propelling us into a new era of network-based drug discovery. This exciting paradigm involves integrating multi-omics data into network analytics to identify specific biological interactions and regulations tailored to personalized medicine using artificial intelligence. The integrative multi-omics network-based analysis raises fundamental questions: How can we effectively eliminate noise and amplify signals in multi-omics data analytics? How can we discern biological conditional interactions and regulations using multi-omics data? And, most importantly, how can we enhance the chances of success in precision medicine through the utilization of multi-omics data? In this presentation, I will showcase the use of multi-omics data to integrate network biology, empowering personalized medicine initiatives. Additionally, I hope to ignite the common interest of the AI@AU community, inspiring us to revisit and rethink the critical questions as we develop cutting-edge technologies to elevate health outcomes and overall quality of life.
