NameDetails
GeneUsing gene expression without integrating any network information.
CENOA genes’ expression is based on the average expression of its neighbors only.
CEMEANThe mean of the expression of a gene and its neighbors.
CEMAXThe maximum of the expression of a gene and its neighbors.
CEMINThe minimum of the expression of a gene and its neighbors.
CEMEDThe median of the expression of a gene and its neighbors.
CEVARThe variance of the expression of a gene and its neighbors.
CEEdgeEach edge is the summation of the expression of its corresponding genes.
PPINOA genes’ expression is based on the average expression of its neighbors only.
PPIMEANThe mean of the expression of a gene and its neighbors.

PPIMINThe minimum of the expression of a gene and its neighbors.
PPIMEDThe median of the expression of a gene and its neighbors.
PPIVARThe variance of the expression of a gene and its neighbors.
PPIEdgeEach edge is the summation of the expression of its corresponding genes.
