hub.wgs {dhga} R Documentation

## Identification of hub genes in a Gene Co-expression Network based on Weighted Gene Score

### Description

The function returns the list of hub genes in a Gene Co-expression Network based on Weighted Gene Score without considering statistical significance values.

### Usage

hub.wgs(x, beta, n)

### Arguments

 x x is a data frame of gene expression values where rows represent genes and columns represent samples/time. beta beta is a soft threshold parameter determined from the scale free property of biological networks (Gene Co-expression Network). n n is a scalar representing number of genes to be declared as hub in the Gene Co-expression Network based on Weighted Gene Score.

### Value

The function returns a list of hub genes in the Gene Co-expression Network
