PANDA citations


Detecting phenotype driven transitions in regulatory network structure

NPJ Syst Biol Appl
PMCID: 5908977
PMID: 29707235
DOI: 10.1038/s41540-018-0052-5

[…] k. For the noiseless version of this simulation, we inferred a regulatory network by integrating known human TF-binding sites with gene expression data in normal human fibroblasts using the algorithm PANDA (see Materials and Methods for further details). After thresholding the edge weights and applying CONDOR, a method for community detection in bipartite networks, we found that the baseline netwo […]


Regulatory network changes between cell lines and their tissues of origin

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5596945
PMID: 28899340
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-017-4111-x

[…] We reconstructed gene regulatory networks using PANDA, a message-passing model that integrates multiple types of genomic data and infers the network of interactions between TFs and their target genes []. PANDA starts with a prior regulatory network […]


An imprinted non coding genomic cluster at 14q32 defines clinically relevant molecular subtypes in osteosarcoma across multiple independent datasets

PMCID: 5433149
PMID: 28506242
DOI: 10.1186/s13045-017-0465-4

[…] We used a method called PUMA (PANDA using MicroRNA Associations, Kuijjer et al., in preparation). This is a network reconstruction algorithm that models gene regulation by miRNAs and transcription factors and is an extension of ou […]


Estimating gene regulatory networks with pandaR

PMCID: 5870629
PMID: 28334344
DOI: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btx139
call_split See protocol

[…] PANDA’s regulatory network model is fundamentally a bipartite graph in which TFs are connected to target genes. In PANDA’s message passing model, the edge weights are calculated based on the evidence […]


Gene regulatory pattern analysis reveals essential role of core transcriptional factors’ activation in triple negative breast cancer

PMCID: 5400636
PMID: 28423538
DOI: 10.18632/oncotarget.15749

[…] latory networks, integrative analyses show promising perspective in comprehending of pathophysiologic mechanisms and developing novel and precise therapies [, ]. Among the multiple integration tools, Passing Attributes between Networks for Data Assimilation (PANDA) has better performance and higher accuracy [–]. PANDA predicts TF-gene regulatory relationships by integrating information from protei […]


Therapeutic potential of targeting microRNA‐10b in established intracranial glioblastoma: first steps toward the clinic

PMCID: 4772951
PMID: 26881967
DOI: 10.15252/emmm.201505495

[…] ed posttranscriptional repression (Lee et al, ; Grey et al, ; Moretti et al, ; Zhou & Rigoutsos, ), direct target up‐regulation through 5′UTR interaction has been reported (Tsai et al, ; Liu et al, ; Panda et al, ). Along with translational, a transcriptional regulation by miRNA through 5′UTR has been also observed (Liu et al, ). Of note, miR‐10a, the close homolog of miR‐10b distinct only in a si […]
