Genetic Architecture and Candidate Genes Identified for Follicle Number in Chicken

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5703906
PMID: 29180824
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-16557-1
call_split See protocol

[…] t Effect Predictor (VEP) and BioMart tools were performed to identify the candidate genes that located the significant SNPs,. A mutual information network was generated based on current results using minet package for R with the Aracne algorithm. The network graphs were exported from R for visualization in the MCODE package within Cytoscape 3.2.1,. Using this visualization tool, we explored networ […]


Estimation of the proteomic cancer co expression sub networks by using association estimators

PLoS One
PMCID: 5690670
PMID: 29145449
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0188016

[…] For the analyses, the build.mim function from the minet [], the obtain.mim function from the DepEst [] and the chooseOneHubInEachModule, adjacency, TOMsimilarity, cutreeDynamic and hclust functions from the WGCNA packages were used. The selected asso […]


Plasma and Serum Metabolite Association Networks: Comparability within and between Studies Using NMR and MS Profiling

J Proteome Res
PMCID: 5645760
PMID: 28517934
DOI: 10.1021/acs.jproteome.7b00106

[…] triplet is interpreted as an indirect interaction and is removed if the difference between the two lowest weights is above a threshold γ. We used the ARANCE implementation presented in the R package “minet” with default parameters (γ = 0). […]


Enlightening discriminative network functional modules behind Principal Component Analysis separation in differential omic science studies

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5347127
PMID: 28287094
DOI: 10.1038/srep43946

[…] neral such as PC-corr does. Network reconstruction techniques can be generally divided into two broad classes: biological knowledge-driven (such as STRING) or data-driven (such as the above-mentioned minet, which for instance can be applied to expression data). However, both these methods only focus on the features’ interactions, neglecting their role in discriminating two or multiple conditions, […]
