Python 3 implementation of PathCORE analysis methods
Python 3 implementation of methods described in Chen et al.’s 2017 PathCORE paper for identifying pathway-pathway interactions using features constructed from transcriptomic data.
This code has been tested on Python 3.5. The documentation for the modules in the package can be accessed here.
To install the current PyPI version (recommended), run:
pip install PathCORE
For the latest GitHub version, run:
pip install git+https://github.com/greenelab/PathCORE.git#egg=PathCORE
We recommend that users of the PathCORE software begin by reviewing the examples in the PathCORE-analysis repository. The analysis repository contains shell scripts and wrapper analysis scripts that demonstrate how to run the methods in this package on features constructed from a broad compendium according to the workflow we describe in our paper.
Specifically, this Jupyter notebook is a simple example of the workflow and a great place to start.
The methods in this module are used to identify the pathways overrepresented in features extracted from a transcriptomic dataset of genes-by-samples. Features must preserve the genes in the dataset and assign weights to these genes based on some distribution. [feature_pathway_overrepresentation documentation.]
Contains the data structure CoNetwork that stores information about the pathway co-occurrence network. The output from a pathway enrichment analysis in feature_pathway_overrepresentation.py serves as input into the CoNetwork constructor. [CoNetwork documentation.]
The methods in this module are used to filter the constructed co-occurence network. We implement a permutation test that evaluates and removes edges (pathway-pathway relationships) in the network that cannot be distinguished from a null model of random associations. The null model is created by generating N permutations of the network. [network_permutation_test documentation.]
