PMID: 28793925
DOI: 10.1186/s40168-017-0307-1

[…] the swissprot protein. as a result, we obtained a human binary interactome containing 74,388 interactions between 12,865 proteins (february 2013)., we detected 855 network modules detected using the overlapping cluster generator algorithm []. modules were functionally annotated by assessing the enrichment of gene ontology (go) biological process and cellular component terms [], and cellular […]

DOI: 10.1371/journal.pcbi.1005522

[…] sets were calculated to derive a z-influence score so that the background had a mean of 0 and a standard deviation of 1., to analyze topological clusters, the human interactome was submitted to the overlapping cluster generator (ocg) []. slim bp and mf annotations were obtained from go (january 2015)., in the therapy-specific networks, seeds were obtained from drugbank (v3) targets []; […]

[…] complexes, and hence, it is reasonable to assume that pins have overlapping communities, each containing some multi-functional proteins. few successful hierarchical clustering approaches such as the overlapping cluster generator (ocg) algorithm of [] and the link communities method of [] (to cite just a few) have been recently proposed with the aim of identifying overlapping protein communities […]

DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0112821

[…] requirements or user interpretation. as a result, existing approaches vary to a large degree. methods exist based on clique percolation (cfinder ), local expansion and optimisation (oslom , ocg and clusterone ), agent-based and dynamical algorithms (ganxisw ), approximate minimum degree ordering (mofinder ), normalised cut calculation (graclus ), regularized sparse random graph model […]
