graphsim: An R package for simulating gene expression data from graph structures of biological pathways

  title={graphsim: An R package for simulating gene expression data from graph structures of biological pathways},
  author={S. Thomas Kelly and Michael A. Black},
Transcriptomic analysis is used to capture the molecular state of a cell or sample in many biological and medical applications. In addition to identifying alterations in activity at the level of individual genes, understanding changes in the gene networks that regulate fundamental biological mechanisms is also an important objective of molecular analysis. As a result, databases that describe biological pathways are increasingly uesad to assist with the interpretation of results from large-scale… 
On Characterization of Graphs Structures Connected with Some Algebraic Properties
In this paper, we have characterized graph structures connected with some algebraic properties. Also, this paper is actually the concatenation of graph theory and algebra. We have introduced left and


Statistical inference of transcriptional module-based gene networks from time course gene expression profiles by using state space models
This article presents a novel approach based on the state space model to identify the transcriptional modules and module-based gene networks simultaneously and succeeds in the identification of a cell cycle system by using the gene expression profiles of Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
Inferring Interaction Networks From Multi-Omics Data
State-of-the-art techniques for inferring the topology of interaction networks from functional multi-omics data are reviewed, encompassing graphical models with multiple node types and quantitative-trait-loci based approaches.
The Reactome pathway Knowledgebase
The Reactome Knowledgebase ( provides molecular details of signal transduction, transport, DNA replication, metabolism and other cellular processes as an ordered network of molecular
GeneNetWeaver: in silico benchmark generation and performance profiling of network inference methods
A novel and comprehensive method for in silico benchmark generation and performance profiling of network inference methods available to the community as an open-source software called GNW, which provides a network motif analysis that reveals systematic prediction errors, thereby indicating potential ways of improving inference methods.
limma powers differential expression analyses for RNA-sequencing and microarray studies
The philosophy and design of the limma package is reviewed, summarizing both new and historical features, with an emphasis on recent enhancements and features that have not been previously described.
A single-cell expression simulator guided by gene regulatory networks
SERGIO is a simulator of single-cell gene expression data that models the stochastic nature of transcription as well as linear and non-linear influences of multiple transcription factors on genes according to a user-provided gene regulatory network and is shown to be comparable with experimental data in terms of multiple statistical measures.
Finding module-based gene networks with state-space models - Mining high-dimensional and short time-course gene expression data
A brief review of the existing literature that use the SSM to analyze the gene expression time-course data and methods to extract further information using the estimated parameters, that is, reconstruction of a module network from time- Course gene expression data.
Recursive regularization for inferring gene networks from time-course gene expression profiles
A new class of regularization is proposed, called recursive elastic net, to increase the capability of the elastic net and estimate gene networks based on the VAR model, which succeeds in reducing the number of false positives drastically while keeping the high number of true positives in the network inference.
Network biology concepts in complex disease comorbidities
Linking network dynamics to the real-life, non-ideal patient in whom diseases co-occur and interact provides a valuable basis for generating hypotheses on molecular disease mechanisms, and provides knowledge that can facilitate drug repurposing and the development of targeted therapeutic strategies.
Gene expression distribution deconvolution in single-cell RNA sequencing
Deconvolution of single-cell expression distribution (DESCEND) is developed, a method that deconvolves the true cross-cell gene expression distribution from observed scRNA-seq counts, leading to improved estimates of properties of the distribution such as dispersion and nonzero fraction.
