MIrExpress: A Database for Gene Coexpression Correlation in Immune Cells Based on Mutual Information and Pearson Correlation

J Immunol Res
PMCID: 4735977
PMID: 26881263
DOI: 10.1155/2015/140819

[…] formatics. COXPRESdb [] was constructed with gene expression data from 63 human tissues and it utilizes the correlation rank to compare the coexpression strengths among multiple species. The database GeneFriends [] adopted the same approach as COXPRESdb to construct coexpression maps based on transcriptome sequencing (RNA-seq) gene data instead of microarray gene data. HGCA [] was constructed base […]


Joint genetic analysis of hippocampal size in mouse and human identifies a novel gene linked to neurodegenerative disease

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 4192369
PMID: 25280473
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2164-15-850

[…] can also be established using coexpression analysis []. However, coexpression can differ between species or between tissues within an organism. To examine if genes are commonly coexpressed in humans, GeneFriends can be used []. GeneFriends takes submitted list of genes and uses a large database of microarray data (4164 Micro array datasets containing 26,113 experimental conditions and 19,080 genes […]
