LAC is a local average connectivity-based method that identifies essential proteins from the network level by evaluating the relationship between a protein and its neighbors.
Software download: LAC
The original protein-protein interaction data was downloaded from DIP (http://dip.doe-mbi.ucla.edu/) and BioGrid (http://thebiogrid.org/ ). The final protein interaction networks used in this paper is given as DIP.txt and BioGRID.txt. The details of two networks are shown in table1. A list of essential proteins of S. cerevisiae are collected from the following databases: MIPS, SGD, DEG, and SGDP. The essential proteins used in this paper is given as Essential.txt.
Table 1 The yeast protein interaction networks obtained from two different databases: DIP and BioGRID.
