GNEA citations


Expression of a specific extracellular matrix signature is a favorable prognostic factor in acute myeloid leukemia

PMCID: 5735295
PMID: 29270355
DOI: 10.1016/j.lrr.2017.12.001

[…] an-Meier (Log-Rank method, KM) and Cox proportional hazards (Cox-PH) survival analyses were performed in IBM SPSS Statistics 21, and all tests were bootstrapped 1000 times unless otherwise specified. Gene network enrichment analysis was performed in String-DB ( and the results imported into Cytoscape for easier visualization. The Linear Support Vector Machine (LSVM) algorithm […]


Network Analysis Reveals Putative Genes Affecting Meat Quality in Angus Cattle

Front Genet
PMCID: 5681485
PMID: 29163638
DOI: 10.3389/fgene.2017.00171

[…] s explaining a small portion of the variation in these complex traits, but they do not have large enough effects in order to reach significance. The danger of a false positive is overcome through the gene/network enrichment analysis where a true false positive gene would most likely be eliminated while genes with a real but small effect on the trait will be validate through their biological role i […]


Tracking disease progression by searching paths in a temporal network of biological processes

PLoS One
PMCID: 5407620
PMID: 28448511
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0176172

[…] ch cluster using tools such as enrichr []. Other methods such as Gene Set Enrichment Analysis [] finds processes/gene lists which significantly correlate with a phenotype of interest. Methods such as Gene Network Enrichment Analysis [] finds high transcriptionally affected sub network in a PPI network and looks for significant overlap with a biological process and gives biological processes pertur […]


Network Pharmacology Studies on the Bioactive Compounds and Action Mechanisms of Natural Products for the Treatment of Diabetes Mellitus: A Review

Front Pharmacol
PMCID: 5322182
PMID: 28280467
DOI: 10.3389/fphar.2017.00074

[…] , pancreatitis (), gout (), Alzheimer’s disease and DM and other metabolic disease (). For DM therapy, network pharmacology has been widely used in the mechanism studies.According to the study of , a gene network enrichment analysis (GNEA) was used to identify two sets of genes, IS-HD and NR-HD gene sets, which was associated with insulin signal and a network of nuclear receptors. They identified […]


Integrated computational approach to the analysis of RNA seq data reveals new transcriptional regulators of psoriasis

PMCID: 5133374
PMID: 27811935
DOI: 10.1038/emm.2016.97

[…] To investigate the relationships between the DEGs, we performed gene network enrichment analysis using the MetaCore software. The top 10 signaling networks enriched with DEGs were mainly associated with different alterations in immune signaling present in the psor […]


Cellular and molecular determinants of all trans retinoic acid sensitivity in breast cancer: Luminal phenotype and RARα expression

PMCID: 4520659
PMID: 25888236
DOI: 10.15252/emmm.201404670

[…] s and inactivates the retinoid (Thatcher et al, ; Topletz et al, ).To define the biochemical pathways regulated by ATRA and potentially involved in the anti-tumor action of the retinoid, we performed gene-network enrichment analysis of the microarray data, focusing on Luminal/ER+ tumors. Among the top 10 processes enriched (Supplementary Table ), the ER nuclear signal transduction pathway is of in […]
