A computational framework for the prioritization of disease gene candidates

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 4547404
PMID: 26330267
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2164-16-S9-S2

[…] a sources and methodology. The study by Vanunu et al. [] applied a diffusion- based method named PRINCE to prioritize genes in prostate cancer, AD and type 2 diabetes. Wu et al. proposed the resource AlignPI [] which applied a network alignment approach predict disease genes. The algorithm VAVIEN [] was also developed to prioritize disease genes based on topological features of PPINs.These diverse […]


Walking on a Tissue Specific Disease Protein Complex Heterogeneous Network for the Discovery of Disease Related Protein Complexes

Biomed Res Int
PMCID: 3888695
PMID: 24455720
DOI: 10.1155/2013/732650

[…] he idea of relying on phenotype similarities between diseases instead of between pre-defined seed genes to make inferences has then been extended by a series of methods, including RWRH [], PRINCE [], AlignPI [], MAXIF [], and many others [–]. In these studies, PPI networks have also been dominantly used to provide a simplified yet systematic measure of functional similarities between gene products […]
