Fuzzy Inference of Gene-sets FIGS


Identifies multi-functional genes from meta-analysis of context-specific transcriptomic datasets. FIGS is an application that can be used to obtain gene-sets from matrix defining the pair-wise distance between the genes. It also provides an option to upload pathways for enrichment analysis of gene-sets. This package requires three parameters: number of clusters, fuzziness allowed between the clusters, and cluster association criteria to produce fuzzy gene-sets.
