    petal: Co-expression network modelling in R

    Networks provide effective models to study complex biological systems, such as gene and protein interaction networks. With the advent of new sequencing technologies, many life scientists are grasping for user-...

    Wnt signal transduction pathways: modules, development and evolution

    Wnt signal transduction pathway (Wnt STP) is a crucial intracellular pathway mainly due to its participation in important biological processes, functions, and diseases, i.e., embryonic development, stem-cell m...

    Identifying the topology of signaling networks from partial RNAi data

    Methods for inferring signaling networks using single gene knockdown RNAi experiments and reference networks have been proposed in recent years. These methods assume that RNAi information is available for all ...

    Opening up the blackbox: an interpretable deep neural network-based classifier for cell-type specific enhancer predictions

    Gene expression is mediated by specialized cis-regulatory modules (CRMs), the most prominent of which are called enhancers. Early experiments indicated that enhancers located far from the gene promoters are often...
