CANTHER-XAI platform and software packages.

We have developed a large set of tools that serve as building blocks for the CANTHER-XAI platform. These tools are frequently accessed and downloaded and are increasingly being recognized and cited worldwide. They also present a major asset for the creation of a complete software ecosystem in computational network biology that ensures easy to access and that can be used in a transparent manner by any life scientist, regardless of computing expertise.

  • CoRegFlux: R Bioconductor package (Trejo el al., BMC Systems Biology2017, Coutant et al., PNAS 2019). Integrating transcriptional activity in genome-scale models of metabolism.
  • LatNet : R package (Dhifli el al., BMC Bioinformatics 2018). Latent
  • network-based representations for large-scale gene expression data analysis.
  • CoRegNet: is an R bioconductor package, which enables learning of gene regulatory networks from transcriptome data and infers master regulators controlling the transition between phenotypes.  (Download stats:
  • PEPPER: is a plugin cytoscape, which enables finding pathways connecting a protein set within a PPI-network using multi-objective optimization. Published in 2014  (Download stats:
  • GREAT : The Genome REgulatory and Architecture Tools (GREAT). GREAT is a software suite of related and interconnected tools, currently able to perform systematic analyses of genome regularities (GREAT-Scan-Pattern) as well as improve TFBS prediction based on gene position information (GREATScan- PreCisIon).
