PMCID: 5660761
PMID: 29158773
DOI: 10.1155/2017/9426280

[…] differentially expressed genes (degs) using david were extracted, followed by identifying the common pathways between ipas and david methods. next, mirnas prediction was implemented via calculating targetscore values with precomputed input (log fold change (fc), targetscan context score (tscs), and probabilities of conserved targeting (pct)). an mrpn construction was constructed using […]

[…] sufficiently large sample sets are unfortunately not always available. the platform supports the inference of mirna-mrna interactions using two complementary bioconductor methods, roleswitch [] and targetscore [], which account for these limitations., roleswitch is able to infer probabilities of mirna-mrna interactions from a single sample. the probabilities of mirna-mrna interaction signature […]
