Exploring the practical applications of GIDEON

One of the most exciting options in GIDEON is the option, found under the   tab in the Infectious Diseases module. Using this facility, you can generate a list of diseases which fulfill specific criteria.

Results are displayed in the lower left-hand window, and disease information is displayed in the right column:
