Identifying meaningful cancer driver genes in a cohort of tumors is a challenging task in cancer genomics. Although existing studies have identified known cancer drivers, most of them focus on detecting coding drivers with mutations. It is acknowledged that non-coding drivers can regulate driver mutations to promote cancer growth. In this work, we propose a novel node importance based network analysis (NIBNA) framework to detect coding and non-coding cancer drivers. We hypothesize … Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
