PeC is a new centrality measure based on the integration of protein-protein interaction and gene expression data.
Software download: PeC
The original protein-protein interaction data was downloaded from DIP (http://dip.doe-mbi.ucla.edu/). The final protein interaction networks used in this paper is given as DIP.txt. The details of DIP network is shown in table1. A list of essential proteins of S. cerevisiae were collected from the following databases: MIPS, SGD, DEG, and SGDP. The essential proteins are given as Essential.txt.The gene expression data of Saccharomyces cerevisiae was retrieved from Tu et al., 2005, containing 6,777 gene products and 36 samples in total, with 4,858 genes involved in the yeast protein interaction network. The gene expression data are given as genedata.txt.
