In this study, a new transfer and ranking framework named iSnoDi-MDRF is proposed to identify potential snoRNA-disease associations,
which has the following advantages:
(i) Ranking framework is integrated into iSnoDi-MDRF, which helps not only with identifying potential associations between known snoRNAs and diseases,
but also with predicting diseases associated with new snoRNAs.
(ii) Known gene-disease associations are transferred into the task of snoRNA-disease association identification combining with known snoRNA-disease associations to help train an effectively model.
