RBGL citations


Maize network analysis revealed gene modules involved in development, nutrients utilization, metabolism, and stress response

BMC Plant Biol
PMCID: 5540570
PMID: 28764653
DOI: 10.1186/s12870-017-1077-4
call_split See protocol

[…] The R package of RBGL v 1.44.0 (http://bioconductor.org/packages/RBGL/) is used to calculate the clustering coefficient of the maize GGM network. The network was clustered via the MCL clustering algorithm, using these […]


TopoICSim: a new semantic similarity measure based on gene ontology

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 4966780
PMID: 27473391
DOI: 10.1186/s12859-016-1160-0

[…] used to weigh the GO terms were calculated using the GOSim package (version 1.8.0) []. For each disjunctive the shortest path between the two GO terms was calculated by the Dijkstra algorithm in the RBGL package (version 1.46.0) [] according to (). Also the longest path between the disjunctive and root was calculated by the topology sorting algorithm [] according to (). […]


Ribosome quality control is a central protection mechanism for yeast exposed to deoxynivalenol and trichothecin

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 4888481
PMID: 27245696
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-016-2718-y

[…] ed if both interaction partners were within the set of remaining seeds. The corresponding networks were then visualized using Cytoscape [] and topological properties were calculated using the igraph, RBGL, and QuACN packages in R [–]. The information-theoretic distance measure was calculated by the infoTheoreticGCM method (parameter: coeff=”exp”) as provided by the QuACN package []. For analyzing […]


CyREST: Turbocharging Cytoscape Access for External Tools via a RESTful API

PMCID: 4670004
PMID: 26672762
DOI: 10.5256/f1000research.7270.r9848

[…] the Bioconductor group to produce the RCy3 harmonization library for R , which leverages cyREST to realize native R network visualization, analysis, and publishing functions. Its igraph, graph , and RBGL packages are useful components for network data analysis workflows. […]


Visualizing collaborative electronic health record usage for hospitalized patients with heart failure

PMCID: 4394967
PMID: 25710558
DOI: 10.1093/jamia/ocu017

[…] on a more global level. Clique membership and size within the provider collaboration network were identified using the kCliques algorithm, which is part of the Boost Graph Library interface package (RBGL) for the R statistical computing environment. Figure 4:: […]


Graphical Modeling of Gene Expression in Monocytes Suggests Molecular Mechanisms Explaining Increased Atherosclerosis in Smokers

PLoS One
PMCID: 3553098
PMID: 23372645
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0050888

[…] rresponding to covariates. Whenever more than one shortest path existed, the algorithm chooses one according to a greedy search. The Dijkstra's algorithm implemented in the sp.between function of the RBGL package for R was used .Note that although in its full version the PC algorithm (Algorithm 2 in ) can asymptotically infer causal associations in a network by directing some of the edges of the s […]
