抄録

Through the NetSci High program, an outreach program organized by network scientists to teach and give research oppurtunities to high school students relating to the field of network science, this research was started. As the field of medicine grows and more and more new diseases are discovered that are quite similar to each other, the number of misdiagnoses of these similar diseases can increase. As a result, it is necessary to look for a way to minimize the risks of misdiagnosing certain genetic diseases. By making physicians aware of pairs of similar and almost indistinguishable diseases, the number of misdiagnoses may decrease. Although many of these almost indistinguishable diseases could have very similar treatments, many may not. Therefore, it is crucial that physicians make accurate diagnoses because there is always a life at stake.
