Gene co-expression networks (GCNs) are graphic representations that depict the coordinated transcription of genes in response to certain stimuli. GCNs provide functional annotations of genes whose function is unknown and are further used in studies of translational functional genomics among species. In this work, a methodology for the reconstruction and(More)
Recent advances in genomic and post-genomic technologies have provided the opportunity to generate a previously unimaginable amount of information. However, biological knowledge is still needed to improve the understanding of complex mechanisms such as plant immune responses. Better knowledge of this process could improve crop production and management.(More)
Relationships between genes are best represented using networks constructed from information of different types, with metabolic information being the most valuable and widely used for genetic network reconstruction. Other types of information are usually also available, and it would be desirable to systematically include them in algorithms for network(More)
