Let's assume that I am searching for gene editing candidates for curing human adiposis. Are there computational frameworks that can allow me to select the best candidate-genes for editing via some CRISPR-like tools? I guess, that extensive databases of already performed experiments are available and human mind is required to select candidate genes for experiments. But maybe there are some methods, that allow computational select, planning of experiment, e.g. using: 1) already known biological pathways for different biological processes or incomplete pathways for the process under consideration; 2) protein-protein interaction models to predict some pathways and to select genes from them. Etc.
I am complete novice for this field, coming from computer science and only starting to read books about molecular cell biology, epigenetics and protein-protein interaction. Maybe there are special terms that allow me to Google for the subject of this question
