MOTIVATION Diagnosis and prognosis of cancer and understanding oncogenesis within the context of biological pathways is one of the most important research areas in bioinformatics. Recently, there have been several attempts to integrate interactome and transcriptome data to identify subnetworks that provide limited interpretations of known and candidate cancer genes, as well as increase classification accuracy. However, these studies provide little information about the detailed roles of…

Integrative Gene Network Construction to Analyze Cancer Recurrence Using Semi-Supervised Learning
TLDR
This work proposed a novel semi-supervised learning algorithm based on a graph regularization approach to predict cancer recurrence, and identified that those gene networks are significantly associated with cancer-recurrence-related biological functions.
Identifying dense subgraphs in protein–protein interaction network for gene selection from microarray data
TLDR
This paper proposes an approach that combines expression analysis with structural analysis of protein–protein interaction networks to identify genes associated with complex diseases and shows that several interesting biological information could be inferred, besides achieving a high prediction accuracy.
Two-layer modular analysis of gene and protein networks in breast cancer
TLDR
A network of networks is constructed, and it is shown that both the gene and protein interaction networks are modular in nature, and also provides a means of determining biological pathways that are related to breast cancer.
Integrating gene expression and protein-protein interaction network to prioritize cancer-associated genes
TLDR
This paper developed a method, Networked Gene Prioritizer (NGP), to prioritize cancer-associated genes, and demonstrated that NGP performs better than the existing methods.
Identifying the Gene Signatures from Gene-Pathway Bipartite Network Guarantees the Robust Model Performance on Predicting the Cancer Prognosis
TLDR
This study proposed a strategy, which combined the statistical algorithm with the gene-pathway bipartite networks, to generate the reliable lists of cancer-related DEGs and constructed the models by using support vector machine for predicting the prognosis of three types of cancers.
Comparative Study of Computational Tools for Hub Gene Selection from Genetic Network using Microarray Data
TLDR
Assessment of three existing network reconstruction methods Weighted Gene Correlation Network Analysis (WGCNA), Algorithm for the Reconstruction of Accurate Cellular Networks (ARACNE), Graphical Lasso (GLASSO) provides evidence for similarity in hub genes selection.
Machine learning-based identification of genetic interactions from heterogeneous gene expression profiles
TLDR
A random forest-based method to classify significant GGIs from gene expression data using Alzheimer's disease data showed remarkable accuracy, and the GGIs established in the analysis can be used to build a meaningful genetic network that can explain the mechanisms underlying Alzheimer’s disease.
Improved prediction of breast cancer outcome by identifying heterogeneous biomarkers
TLDR
Functional study showed that distinct biological processes were enriched in each cluster, which seems to reflect different aspect of tumor progression or oncogenesis among distinct patient groups, providing support for the hypothesis that the approach can effectively identify heterogeneous prognostic genes.

Network-based classification of breast cancer metastasis
TLDR
A protein‐network‐based approach is applied that identifies markers not as individual genes but as subnetworks extracted from protein interaction databases, which provide novel hypotheses for pathways involved in tumor progression.
Comprehensive gene expression analysis of prostate cancer reveals distinct transcriptional programs associated with metastatic disease.
TLDR
A strong correlation between high proliferation rates in metastatic cancers and overexpression of genes that participate in cell cycle regulation, DNA replication, and DNA repair and other functional categories of differentially expressed genes included transcriptional regulation, signaling, signal transduction, cell structure, and motility.
Analysis of gene expression identifies candidate markers and pharmacological targets in prostate cancer.
TLDR
Primary prostate cancer was characterized by monitoring expression levels of more than 8900 genes in normal and malignant tissues, and a striking group of about 400 genes were identified that were overexpressed in tumor tissues.

TLDR
Analysis of two breast cancer patient cohorts revealed that altered modularity of the human interactome may be useful as an indicator of breast cancer prognosis.

TLDR
Several case studies of Cytoscape plug-ins are surveyed, including a search for interaction pathways correlating with changes in gene expression, a study of protein complexes involved in cellular recovery to DNA damage, inference of a combined physical/functional interaction network for Halobacterium, and an interface to detailed stochastic/kinetic gene regulatory models.

The Pathway Interaction Database (PID), a freely available collection of curated and peer-reviewed pathways composed of human molecular signaling and regulatory events and key cellular processes, serves as a research tool for the cancer research community and others interested in cellular pathways.
Unequal evolutionary conservation of human protein interactions in interologous networks
TLDR
Human proteins, like yeast proteins, show a correlation between the number of interacting partners and evolutionary conservation, and it is demonstrated that protein complexes are conserved preferentially, compared to transient interactions in the network.
