• An Efficient Algorithm for Identifying Mutated Subnetworks Associated with Survival in Cancer

    13 days ago - By IEEE/ACM

    Protein-protein interaction network models interconnections between protein-encoding genes. A group of proteins that perform similar functions are often connected to each other in the PPI network. The corresponding genes form pathways or functional modules. Mutation in protein-encoding genes affect behavior of pathways. This results in initiation, progression, and severity of diseases that propagates through pathways. In this work, we integrate mutation, survival information of patients, and PPI network to identify connected subnetworks associated with survival. We define the computational...
