Studying the Complex Expression Dependences between Sets of Coexpressed Genes

Figure 1

This view shows a nonlinear expression relationship where a researcher’s gene of interest participates. The gene of interest is displayed on the top of the view on the left side. The column on the left side displays the genes coexpressed with the gene of interest, while the column on the right displays a set of coexpressed genes that maintain a nonlinear expression relationship with the gene of interest. The coexpressed genes are ordered by their correlation degree with their respective gene at the top (the value obtained by the PCOP calculation). The icon shows the curve type of the nonlinear expression relationship. Each curve type implies a different expression dependence: mutual exclusion, trigger, double trigger, and so on. All the expression relationships relating genes from the two sets of coexpressed genes should be of the type shown by the icon. By selecting genes from the two sets, their expression relationship can be studied in detail in a new interface (Figure 3).
