Reconstructing differentially co-expressed gene modules and regulatory networks of soybean cells. From Gigabyte to Kilobyte: A Bioinformatics Protocol for Mining Large RNA-Seq Transcriptomics Data. Abstract RNA-Seq techniques generate hundreds of millions of short RNA reads using next-generation sequencing (NGS).

From Gigabyte to Kilobyte: A Bioinformatics Protocol for Mining Large RNA-Seq Transcriptomics Data

These RNA reads can be mapped to reference genomes to investigate changes of gene expression but improved procedures for mining large RNA-Seq datasets to extract valuable biological knowledge are needed. RNAMiner—a multi-level bioinformatics protocol and pipeline—has been developed for such datasets. It includes five steps: Mapping RNA-Seq reads to a reference genome, calculating gene expression values, identifying differentially expressed genes, predicting gene functions, and constructing gene regulatory networks.

To demonstrate its utility, we applied RNAMiner to datasets generated from Human, Mouse, Arabidopsis thaliana, and Drosophila melanogaster cells, and successfully identified differentially expressed genes, clustered them into cohesive functional groups, and constructed novel gene regulatory networks.

Network analysis software. Library / Module For Network Analysis. CoExpress. A Tool for an Effective Co-Expression Analysis of Large Microarray Data Sets Co-expression (CE) analysis of microarray data may provide interesting insights in understanding the gene and transcript level regulations in biological samples.


It allows gene-networks reconstruction, disease pattern recognition, inferring of causal genes, etc. However, due to high computational costs and memory limitations, there is still a need in effective and user-friendly tools for the analysis of CE. Here we propose a stand-alone software tool CoExpress for the interactive CE analysis of microarray data. The software is a user-friendly and allows on-the-fly study of CE, including: expression data preprocessing, possibility for customized preprocessiong usin R; filtering; advanced interactive analysis of the expression profiles; building and visualization of CE matrix using correlation or mutual information metrics; comparing the detected co-expressions with predicted targets (for miRNA:mRNA interaction).

Tutorials for WGCNA R package

We illustrate various aspects of data input, network construction, module detection, relating modules and genes to external information etc. Before going through the tutorials, please make sure you have installed (the newest version of) the WGCNA package and all packages it depends on. We provide three introductory tutorials (I - III), each split into smaller sections for easier reading, and we link to more advanced tutorials that describe research analyses in which we used WGCNA. The first tutorial guides the reader through an analysis of a single empirical gene expression data set. The tutorials on this page were last updated on June 6, 2014.
