Scoring of the gene classification

Hi, I was looking Open Target Platform to do data and text mining for my research. However, I was curious about the scoring method since I didn’t find any cutoff that showed which score needed to be considered while selecting the significant gene. Thus, could anyone enlightes me on how to set the cut off

Hi @Nur_Adlina_Binti_Moh, and welcome to the Open Targets Community! :tada:

In the Open Targets Platform, target-disease association scores reflect the amount of evidence available for the association. They are not a confidence score in the association. This means that a low-scoring target might actually be a very interesting target.

For this reason, we do not provide a cutoff score for significance.

You can find more information about this in the scoring section of our documentation.

I hope this helps!
