PMID: 28408892
DOI: 10.3389/fpsyg.2017.00469

[…] between their network members. this is an issue that can be solved easily in future studies by using software especially developed for collecting egocentric network data, such as the program egonet, that automatically and separately asks the participants about each possible alter pair, thus facilitating an accurate reporting of all possible connections between alters., a third limitation […]

PMCID: 5343561
PMID: 28225867
DOI: 10.1590/1414-431X20165793

[…] understanding of the pathological mechanism of os may help to achieve new treatments for this tumor. hence, the objective of this study was to investigate ego modules and pathways in os utilizing egonet algorithm and pathway-related analysis, and reveal pathological mechanisms underlying os. the egonet algorithm comprises four steps: constructing background protein-protein interaction (ppi) […]

DOI: 10.1038/srep36152

[…] not only the coauthorship ties between an ego and her alters (ego-alter ties), but also the coauthorship ties among alters (alter-alter ties). technically, the personal networks were built using the egocentric network study software - egonet. afterwards, the resulted outputs (the collections of personal networks) were transferred to ucinet for structural measurements (e.g. the computing […]

[…] atus based on a 4-item spanish language acculturation scale [], and wealth based on an 8-item guttman household wealth scale []., to analyze social network data, all survey data were entered into the egonet software program and exported to spss for further analysis []. density was calculated based on the mean of the closeness variable between each alter pair identified by ego (0 = “no tie”; 1 = “t […]

[…] although current available gene-centric tools allow to navigate through interactions, such as genemania [,], or facilitate the reconstruction of disease subnetworks from expression profiles, like egonet [], in the field of retinal diseases there is no such a tool to visualize specific gene or protein interactions among rp/lca causative genes. consequently, information has to be gathered […]
