PMCID: 5647344
PMID: 29044207
DOI: 10.1038/s41467-017-01194-z

[…] using the webgestalt online tool. for disease association analysis, webgestalt uses disease terms downloaded from pharmgkb and genes associated with individual disease terms were inferred using glad4u (gene list automatically derived for you). human genome data (hsapiens_genome) was used as reference set, the benjamini-hochberg multiple test was used to adjust for multiple testing. […]

DOI: 10.1186/s12920-017-0286-x

[…] the following criteria: 1) fully available in web service platform and 2) requiring only the disease name for gene prioritization. under these conditions we found 12 methods: biograph [], candid [], glad4u [], polysearch [], cipher [], guildify [], disgenet [], geneprospector [], genie [], snps3d [], genedistiller [] and metaranker []. the following methods: cipher, guildify and disgenet […]

[…] on each method using webgestalt (), with the human genome as the reference, and searching the following data bases: gene ontology (, ), pathway commons (), kegg pathway (, ), disease (, and phenotypes (). we used a significance threshold of 0.05 and a multiple testing correction (benjamini-hochberg) to control for false discovery. within genes […]

[…] are presented in supplemental table 3. among the differentially expressed genes, 410 could be assigned as “breast cancer–relevant” based on a list of 433 breast cancer–relevant genes generated using glad4u webservice. the 10 most up- and down-regulated breast cancer relevant genes as defined by this method are presented in supplemental table 4. kegg pathway enrichment analysis […]

[…] the go database, were significantly dysregulated in balr-6 knockdown cell lines, including cell death and cell proliferation (fig. ). disease associated enrichment analysis, which was inferred using glad4u, showed an enrichment of genes known to be dysregulated in various disease states (fig. ). of the 38 significantly associated disease states, 14 were of leukemic origin. transcription factor […]
