Abstract

The progress made during the last 20 years in terms of gene sequencing and editing have allowed cancer treatment techniques to take a bold step forward. Indeed, the study of cell signaling and gene regulations mechanisms now allows to better comprehend various cancers development and thus, propose more efficient and targeted treatments than in the past. But the path between the biology and medical worlds requires the analysis, by specialists, of a large amount of data to be able to provide doctors with precise and easily exploitable information. This thesis tries to lay down the foundation of an expert system able to automatically treat this information and help specialists in their analysis.
