Pipeline for augmented co-expression analysis

Bioconductor version: Development (3.19)

The development of high-throughput sequencing led to increased use of co-expression analysis to go beyong single feature (i.e. gene) focus. We propose GWENA (Gene Whole co-Expression Network Analysis) , a tool designed to perform gene co-expression network analysis and explore the results in a single pipeline. It includes functional enrichment of modules of co-expressed genes, phenotypcal association, topological analysis and comparison of networks configuration between conditions.
