Figure 5: Simplified dynamic gene network for genes in profile of Figure 3(a). The global dynamic gene networks of the cortex and STR are shown in Figures S1A and S1B. A simplified network is presented here with the genes without names or some minor genes in the network deleted. The blue dots indicate the differentially regulated genes. The lines show the relationship between genes. The solid line denotes positive regulation, and the dashed line denotes negative regulation. The size of the dots indicates the capability of the gene to interact with others, quantified by “degree” (refer to Section 2). The larger the degree, the more the genes interacted with the corresponding genes and the more important this gene was in the network.
