Two important challenges in precision medicine are the identification of disease subtypes, and the contextualisation of the molecular signatures associated with these subtypes to gain mechanistic insight. Network-based approaches can help to address both these challenges. We discuss the integration of multiple heterogenous datatypes for patient stratification, and the application of graphs for knowledge representation when exploring biological context.
