PMID: 29188012
DOI: 10.5256/f1000research.9906.r17046

[…] the networks under investigation, with some randomly generated networks., it is important to note that some apps that allow performing network comparison exist. for instance dynet , gasoline , netmatch* , and randomnetworks . randomnetworks has a lot of similarities with our app but is no longer maintained and it works only with cytoscape 2.x which makes it useless with the newly developed […]

DOI: 10.1186/s12859-017-1672-2

[…] common protein that is a party of a ppi., to search for mirscoppi motifs, we firstly integrate brca-related mirna sponge interactions, ppis, and lncrna-target interactions into a network. we use the netmatchstar plugin [] in cytoscape [] to search the integrated network for the two types of mirscoppi motifs. finally, we merge the identified mirscoppi motifs to obtain the brca-related mirscoppi […]

[…] can be a useful strategy in prioritizing drug combinations to test experimentally. networks exported into cytoscape [], a open source software platform for network visualization, can use the netmatch plug-in [] to quickly search for motifs of interest., network modeling approaches are useful when network topology is known, but these approaches can be biased towards established pathways […]

PMID: 24303025
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0080751

[…] in which a motif occurred more often than in the input network, divided by total number of random networks. was used as cutoff. respective sub-networks of enriched motifs were identified with netmatch cytoscape plugin. jactivemodules and clusterone were used for network module and protein complex detection. clusterone analysis was carried out with minimum cluster size of 3 with unweighted […]
