An Overview of Weighted Gene Co-Expression Network Analysis

5275 MSC



Weighted gene co-expression network analysis (WGCNA) facilitates a
systems biologic view of gene expression data. The network framework makes it straightforward to integrate gene expression data with other types of data, e.g. clinical traits, proteomics data or genetic markermdata. This talk covers several theoretical topics including network construction, module definition, network based gene screening, and differential network analysis.  The methods are illustrated using several applications including i) screening for cancer genes, ii) characterizing obesity related genes in mice, iii) comparing human and chimp brains, and iv) complex disease gene mapping.
