Whole exome sequencing in obsessive compulsive disorder identifies rare mutations in immunological and neurodevelopmental pathways

PMCID: 4872454
PMID: 27023170
DOI: 10.1038/tp.2016.30

[…] ted edges. We included PPIs that were present in any of the 10 databases consolidated within iRefIndex (). We applied two methods of permutation, ‘seed randomization' and ‘network permutation,' using GeneNet toolbox for MATLAB to show that the connectivity metrics of our network are different from networks generated by chance. […]


A Systems Genetics Approach and Data Mining Tool to Assist in the Discovery of Genes Underlying Complex Traits in Oryza sativa

PLoS One
PMCID: 3713027
PMID: 23874666
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0068551

[…] study by Zhao et al were used . Genes overlapping both QTL and GWAS SNP intervals were putatively assigned the trait. These associations as well as all GILs were input into an online database called GeneNet Engine which is available online at The data is housed in a Chado database schema with custom tables and visualized using Tripal . Next all available rice SN […]


A metabolomic strategy defines the regulation of lipid content and global metabolism by Δ9 desaturases in Caenorhabditis elegans

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 3398271
PMID: 22264337
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2164-13-36

[…] The fatty acid peaks identified in the GC-FID chromatograms were normalised to the internal standard, imported into R and analysed by Gaussian Graphical Models (GGM), using GeneNet [[];]. […]


Identification of transcription factor's targets using tissue specific transcriptomic data in Arabidopsis thaliana

BMC Syst Biol
PMCID: 2982689
PMID: 20840729
DOI: 10.1186/1752-0509-4-S2-S2

[…] number of genes is comparable to number of samples in the microarray data [,]. One way to avoid this limitation is to use GGM with regularization and moderation, which is implemented as an R package GeneNet [,]. This method has been used to infer genome-scale regulatory network for A. thaliana transcriptome []. Some other methods are based on probabilistic models, such as the Bayesian network [] […]


From correlation to causation networks: a simple approximate learning algorithm and its application to high dimensional plant gene expression data

BMC Syst Biol
PMCID: 1995222
PMID: 17683609
DOI: 10.1186/1752-0509-1-37

[…] ion. This graph is very hard to interpret, the branches do not have any immediate or intuitive meaning (a complete annotation of the nodes can be found along with the dataset itself in the R package "GeneNet" []). For instance, there are no hubs as typically observed in biological networks [,].This is in great contrast to the partially directed partial correlation graph. For this specific data set […]
