The output from MetaRanker consists of the following parts:
Please note, that the layer details only are reported if the specific layer was chosen by the user prior to the analysis.
A table showing the 20 highest ranking genes. Here you will find
the overall score of the gene, the gene's permutation-based p-value, and other gene-specific information, such as the gene's normalized score from each layer used in the analysis (in ascending order; 1 means that the gene was not part of the original input or formation of that particular layer).
A downloadable file containing the results of all genes.
A overview figure of the 20 highest ranking genes (Figure 3a, Pers and Hansen et al. Genetic Epidemiology 2011).
A downloadable file containing a pdf-version of the overview figure.
Downloadable Cytoscape files that can be used for construction of the seed
gene network (Figure 3b, Pers and Hansen et al. Genetic Epidemiology 2011).
The file with the .sif extension contains the network, the .csv
file contains gene specific information used for assigning
attribute to the nodes in the network, and the .eda file that
contains confidence levels for the protein-protein interactions.
Details on the genome-wide association evidence layer: Number of SNPs that were mapped, number of SNPs that were discarded due to missing or wrongly specified p-values, number of SNPs that were discarded because they were not mapped to genes, and the total number of genes scored in that layer.
Details on the candidate gene interaction evidence layer: Number of input seed genes specified by the user that could mapped to the protein-protein interaction meta database used in this work (previously reported in Lage et al. Nature Biotechnology 2007), and the total number of genes scored in that layer.
Details on the differential gene expression evidence layer: The number of user-specified genes and the total number of genes scored in that layer.
Details on the linkage interval evidence layer: The total number of genes in each distinct user-specified linkage interval, and the total number of genes scored in that layer.
Details on the phenotype similarity evidence layer: The phenotypes that were most similar to the phenotype specified by the user, and the total number of genes assigned a phenotype similarity score.
