GO-PCA: An Unsupervised Method to Explore Gene Expression Data Using Prior Knowledge

Project Description


GO-PCA (Wagner, 2015) is an unsupervised method to explore gene expression data using prior knowledge. This is a free and open-source implementation of GO-PCA in Python.

Briefly, GO-PCA combines principal component analysis (PCA) with nonparametric GO enrichment analysis in order to generate signatures, i.e., small sets of genes that are both strongly correlated and closely functionally related. It then visualizes the expression profiles of all signatures in a signature matrix, designed to serve as a systematic and easily interpretable representation of biologically relevant expression patterns.
