Easy and efficient ensemble gene set testing with EGSEA

PMCID: 5747338
PMID: 29333246
DOI: 10.5256/f1000research.13583.r27972

[…] enrichment (GSE) analysis methods released through the Bioconductor project together with a steady increase in the number of gene set collections available through online databases such as MSigDB , GeneSetDB and KEGG . In an effort to unify these computational methods and knowledge-bases, the EGSEA R/Bioconductor package was developed. EGSEA, which stands for Ensemble of Gene Set Enrichment Ana […]


Tumor protein 53 mutations are enriched in diffuse large B cell lymphoma with irregular CD19 marker expression

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5431468
PMID: 28484276
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-01800-6

[…] ere used for pathway analyses. Pathway analyses were performed using PANTHER ( A customized list of genes involved in differentiation of different cell lineages was downloaded from genesetdb ( (Supplementary Table ). The genesetTest function from the “LIMMA” package ( was […]


RNA immunoprecipitation identifies novel targets of DAZL in human foetal ovary

PMCID: 5943682
PMID: 28364521
DOI: 10.1093/molehr/gax004
call_split See protocol

[…] This was filtered further to include only Ensembl genes with an HGNC gene symbol in the bioMart database. Relationships between significantly differentially expressed RNAs were further explored using GeneSetDB () using all genes represented in the control and DAZL immunoprecipitations as the universe. […]


MelanomaDB: A Web Tool for Integrative Analysis of Melanoma Genomic Information to Identify Disease Associated Molecular Pathways

PMCID: 3712543
PMID: 23875173
DOI: 10.3389/fonc.2013.00184

[…] ified. Then, the molecular pathways these genes correspond to, along with any statistically significant pathway enrichment within the list of variant genes and targeting drugs, are retrieved from the GeneSetDB pathway analysis web tool (). A diagram showing tumor variant genes in the context of molecular pathways is generated using the KEGG, Reactome, and Biocarta pathways included in the R graphi […]


Vasohibin 1 is identified as a master regulator of endothelial cell apoptosis using gene network analysis

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 3570387
PMID: 23324451
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2164-14-23

[…] ), and unless otherwise stated, multiple testing corrections were applied using the Benjamini and Hochberg method. Gene ontology/pathway enrichment analyses were carried out using Fatigo software [], GeneSetDB [], GATHER ( and IPA (Ingenuity systems, […]
