Dear List, I have recently started exploring the Package ‘BioNet’ for network analysis of microarray data. I have a fundamental question about the interpretation of the results. From my understanding, BioNet first takes a series of p-values, fits them to a model, and then uses this information to score the nodes of a given network (the package is based on a human protein-protein interaction network) and output the best scoring subnetwork. In the 2D visualization of this subnetwork, squares represent nodes with a negative score and circles represent nodes with a positive score. What I do not understand is what the sign of the scores represents, i.e., what is the interpretation of an interaction between two positive nodes vs the interaction of two negative nodes? I am attaching the code from the BioNet Tutorial for the introductory example, only I am not aggregating the pvalues, but rather just taking the pvalues for differential expression (because I am only using this information for my own data). I also changed the FDR threshold so that the resulting network would be smaller. Thanks a lot in advance.
