[…] to biological pathway and interaction knowledge. The most prominent pathway databases are Reactome [], the Network Data Exchange (NDEx) [], the Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes (KEGG) [], and WikiPathways [] as well as disease-specific databases such as the Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man (OMIM) resource []. Databases focusing on molecular interactions include BioGRID [], IntAct [] and […]


Pure flavonoid epicatechin and whole genome gene expression profiles in circulating immune cells in adults with elevated blood pressure: A randomised double blind, placebo controlled, crossover trial

PLoS One
PMCID: 5908087
PMID: 29672527
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0194229

[…] lue was <0.05. Changes in gene expression were related to changes in pathways by gene set enrichment analysis (GSEA) []. Gene sets were obtained from the KEGG, National Cancer Institute, Reactome and WikiPathways pathway databases. Only gene sets consisting of more than 10 and fewer than 500 genes were taken into account. The statistical significance of GSEA results was determined using 1,000 perm […]

From SNPs to pathways: Biological interpretation of type 2 diabetes (T2DM) genome wide association study (GWAS) results

PLoS One
PMCID: 5884486
PMID: 29617380
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0193515

[…] We used GOElite [] to provide a biological description from the Gene Ontology for the 678 genes that were not found in the complete WikiPathways curated collection, and therefore not represented in the SNP-gene-pathway network. When we used all three main GO classes, molecular function, biological process and cellular component, 6 […]
