My Plans

I will work with Cynthia on the project detailed below.


Using data from the World Health Organization, we will get the following information about the diseases that we diagnose:

  • If the disease is curable
  • Treatments
  • Preventions

This will be done by searching WHO for the disease name and parsing the returned information regarding the disease.

For Tuesday April 17: we expect to have parsed the information from the WHO.


It looks like the WHO website does not really have information regarding genetic diseases.

I am currently searching for genetic disorders within WHO.

Looks like WHO may be a dead end. I am currently looking at other websites that might provide treatment information for various genetic diseases - such as www.freemedsoftware.org.
