Network-Module-Based Approaches in Cancer Data Analysis

Guanming Wu, Lincoln Stein

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Researchers have recognized that biological phenotypes are underlain by the network of interactions among proteins, RNAs, DNAs, and other entities in the cell. Network-based data analysis approaches have been widely used in cancer data analysis. In this chapter, we review network-module-based approaches and their applications to cancer data analysis. We also introduce a software tool for doing network-module-based data analysis for cancer data.
