[…] M-values normalization method. The differentially expressed genes were identified using the DESeq R package (www-huber.embl.de/users/anders/DESeq/). Gene set enrichment tests were performed using the GAGE R tool. Clustering was performed by principal component analysis and hierarchical clustering. Gene ontology analyses were performed by DAVID (https://david.ncifcrf.gov/) and visualized by REVIGO […]

[…] e analysis of differentially expressed genes in gene aggregation mode, requiring q-values of <0.05 for both Wald and likelihood ratio tests, with a beta value cut-off 0.25. For KEGG pathway analysis, GAGE 2.24.0 was used with log2 transformed, filtered and normalized TPM values extracted from sleuth. An FDR of 0.1 was applied as cut-off for significance. […]

[…] ses. We report all the GO terms recovered by this approach in Supplementary Dataset . The up- or down-regulation of KEGG pathway-related gene expression was determined using z-test as implemented in “GAGE” R package (). This analysis employed input from all the genes, irrespective of fold-change level or statistical significance, and looked for coordinated expression changes within a particular pa […]

[…] nections between transcriptome and electrophysiological features, we looked for common functional pathways among altered genes using the generally applicable gene-set enrichment for pathway analysis (GAGE), which maps the gene expression pattern onto the Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes Pathway database (KEGG). GAGE indicated an enrichment of synapse related pathways among the upregulated e […]

[…] package. GO term and pathway enrichment analyses were performed based on the effect size between the different mouse strains or age using the generally applicable Gen Set Enrichment Analysis (GSEA), GAGE, which determines whether a set of genes is systematically up- or down-regulated as a whole. For gene set definitions, we used the Molecular Signatures Database (MSigDB) collections v.5.2 that we […]

The resulting table was imported in the GAGE Bioconductor package [] to identify biological pathways overrepresented or underrepresented between PGs and RCs samples. To characterize the accuracy of PICRUSt, the Nearest Sequenced Taxon Index […]

A fairly easy algorithm and R package to perform custom gene set enrichment analyses with normalized expression datasets. My only qualm is the lack of information and examples to assist in the guidance of variable universe sizes among different datasets. A Fisher's test is very explicit in the effects of a changing universe size, but have had to empirically test, through numerous iterations, the equivalency of one sets enrichment results to another using the same reference set for comparison. Regardless, the ease of implementation compared with other popular packages, such as GSEA, make it possible to iteratively test such parameter changes in short order.
