• A network-based machine-learning framework to identify both functional modules and disease genes

    Abstract
    Disease gene identification is a critical step towards uncovering the molecular mechanisms of diseases and systematically investigating complex disease phenotypes. Despite considerable efforts to develop powerful computing methods, candidate gene identification remains a severe challenge owing to the connectivity of an incomplete interactome network, which hampers the discovery of true novel candidate genes. We developed a network-based machine-learning framework to identify both functional modules and disease candidate genes. In this framework, we designed a semi-supervised...
