Interesting Gene list | Reference Gene set

The Interesting gene list is a gene expression signature for colorectal cancer prognosis downloaded from Shi et al., which includes 487 genes that were inferred by prioritizing candidate genes identified from genomic and transcriptomic studies on a protein-protein interaction network. The reference gene set includes the 11521 genes in the protein-protein interaction network used in the paper. Because the genes are from a human study and the gene ID types in both files are HUGO gene symbols, the users should select "hsapiens" as the organism and select "hsapiens_gene_symbol" as the gene ID type when uploading both the interesting gene list and the reference gene set.

WebGestalt is currently developed and maintained by Jing Wang and Bing Zhang at the Zhang Lab. Other people who have made significant contribution to the project include Dexter Duncan, Stefan Kirov, Zhiao Shi, and Jay Snoddy.
