Conceptualizing the Dynamics between Bicultural Identification and Personal Social Networks

Front Psychol
PMCID: 5374160
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 […]


Investigating ego modules and pathways in osteosarcoma by integrating the EgoNet algorithm and pathway analysis

Braz J Med Biol Res
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) […]


Homophily in coauthorship networks of East European sociologists

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5082375
PMID: 27786271
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 […]


Social network characteristics and cervical cancer screening among Quechua women in Andean Peru

BMC Public Health
PMCID: 4765061
PMID: 26911388
DOI: 10.1186/s12889-016-2878-3

[…] 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 […]


Distilling a Visual Network of Retinitis Pigmentosa Gene Protein Interactions to Uncover New Disease Candidates

PLoS One
PMCID: 4534355
PMID: 26267445
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0135307

[…] 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 […]


Time varying networks and the weakness of strong ties

Sci Rep
PMCID: 3918922
PMID: 24510159
DOI: 10.1038/srep04001

[…] weak ties among agents that are activated only occasionally. it is natural to assume that strong ties are the first to appear in the system, while weak ties are incrementally added to the egonet of each agent1. this intuition has been recently confirmed in a large-scale dataset and indicates a particular egocentric network evolution. in order to quantify it, we measure […]
