Motivation Large-scale publicly available genomic data on many disease phenotypes could improve our understanding of the molecular basis of disease. Tools that undertake this challenge by jointly analyzing multiple phenotypes are needed. Results ADEPTUS is a web-tool that enables various functional genomics analyses based on a high-quality curated database spanning >38, 000 gene expression profiles and >100 diseases. It offers four types of analysis. (i) For a gene list provided by the user…

Analysis of the autophagy gene expression profile of pancreatic cancer based on autophagy-related protein microtubule-associated protein 1A/1B-light chain 3
A key gene ubiquitin C which is closely related to the occurrence of PNI was determined, suggesting that LC3 may influence the PNI and prognosis of pancreatic cancer through ubiquit in C.
A Self-Predictable Crop Yield Platform (SCYP) Based On Crop Diseases Using Deep Learning
This paper proposes a self-predictable crop yield platform (SCYP) based on crop diseases using deep learning that collects weather information (temperature, humidity, sunshine, precipitation, etc.)
Optimal control of false discovery criteria in the two‐group model
This paper addresses the challenge of controlling optimally the popular false discovery rate (fDR) or positive FDR (pFDR) rather than mFDR in the two group model and suggests that the pFDR is (arguably) the preferred error measure to control optimally for theTwo group model.


Integrated analysis of numerous heterogeneous gene expression profiles for detecting robust disease-specific biomarkers and proposing drug targets
This methodology can greatly improve the exploitation of the mountain of expression profiles for better disease analysis and combine these biomarkers with large-scale interaction, mutation and drug target data, forming a highly valuable disease summary that suggests novel directions in disease understanding and drug repurposing.
Gene set enrichment analysis: A knowledge-based approach for interpreting genome-wide expression profiles
It is demonstrated how the GSEA method yields insights into several cancer-related data sets, including leukemia and lung cancer, where single-gene analysis finds little similarity between two independent studies of patient survival in lung cancer.
Expander: from expression microarrays to networks and functions
The microarray analysis described in this protocol starts with importing the data into Expander 5.0 and is followed by normalization and filtering, followed by clustering and network-based analyses, which identify the gene groups identified and are tested for enrichment in function, co-regulation or co-location.
Utilizing somatic mutation data from numerous studies for cancer research: proof of concept and applications
It is shown that somatic gene mutations alone can reliably and specifically predict cancer subtypes, and curation efforts, such as COSMIC, have great added and complementary value even in the era of large international cancer projects.
GeneMANIA: Fast gene network construction and function prediction for Cytoscape
The GeneMANIA Cytoscape app enables users to construct a composite gene-gene functional interaction network from a gene list. The resulting network includes the genes most related to the original
KEGG: Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes
KEGG (Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes) is a knowledge base for systematic analysis of gene functions, linking genomic information with higher order functional information. The genomic
DrugBank 4.0: shedding new light on drug metabolism
The latest update of DrugBank, DrugBank 4.0, has been further expanded to contain data on drug metabolism, absorption, distribution, metabolism, excretion and toxicity (ADMET) and other kinds of quantitative structure activity relationships (QSAR) information.
Discovery and saturation analysis of cancer genes across 21 tumor types
It is found that large-scale genomic analysis can identify nearly all known cancer genes in these cancer types and 33 genes that were not previously known to be significantly mutated in cancer, including genes related to proliferation, apoptosis, genome stability, chromatin regulation, immune evasion, RNA processing and protein homeostasis.
Evaluating the evaluation of cancer driver genes
An evaluation framework is established that can be applied to driver gene prediction methods and it is suggested that most current methods do not adequately account for heterogeneity in the number of mutations expected by chance and consequently yield many false-positive calls, particularly in cancers with high mutation rate.
The Genotype-Tissue Expression (GTEx) project
The Genotype-Tissue Expression (GTEx) project is described, which will establish a resource database and associated tissue bank for the scientific community to study the relationship between genetic variation and gene expression in human tissues.
