PMID: 29453355
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-21377-y

[…] individual atl-centered co-expression clusters were also merged, and nodes with < 2 connecting edges were discarded, before partitioning into communities of densely connected nodes using glay, prior to visualization in cytoscape v3.0., enrichment p-values, based on a fdr-adjusted hypergeometric distribution of mapman bin categories was determined using 29,424 genes with annotated bin […]

PMCID: 5857180
PMID: 29556568
DOI: 10.1016/j.bbrep.2018.01.001

[…] in order to identify topologically highly dense areas in the network, clusters were determined using cytoscape plugins including allegromcode and clustermaker which is based on community clustering (glay) and markov clustering (mcl) algorithms. the clustering algorithm of allegromcode plugin is molecular complex detection (mcode), based on node weighting according to the local neighborhood […]

[…] to perform hierarchical clustering (using euclidean distance) and to generate heatmaps using the r package gplots. to identify modules in the network, community clustering was performed using the glay plugin in cytoscape. the advantage of girvan and newman’s clustering algorithm is that it does not require the number of clusters to be fixed as in other clustering techniques such as k-means. […]

[…] including the genes clustered in the ‘muscle’ and ‘type i interferon’ related sub-networks. a lower correlation coefficient threshold (>+0.75) was used to build the epithelium network and the glay community clustering plugin in cytoscape was used to subdivide the network into clusters (). sets of genes were mapped to the networks using standard procedures in cytoscape., we performed […]

[…] 50 hub genes including zbtb16, cask, fos, bhlhe40, tgfb1 and nos3., the ppi network was further subdivided into connectivity modules using the fast-greedy he (g) algorithm of the community clusters glay []. this resulted in the identification of nine connectivity modules closely connected. the modules were analyzed for functionality enrichment using the gene ontology (go) database ()., thus, […]
