Welcome to the hompage of PAGnet package!

This package provides Master Regulator Analysis (MRA) in Pseudomonas aeruginosa genomic integrated regulatory network (PAGnet).

Quick Installation

This package is available under R(>= 3.5).

If you have installed devtools package, you only need to call install_github function in devtools to install PAGnet.

Please refer to the following commands to install **PAGnet**


devtools::install_github("CityUHK-CompBio/PAGnet", dependencies=TRUE)


PAGnet requires the following R/Bioconductor packages for its full function:

Quick Start

Here is a simple but useful example to use PAGnet to perform Master Regulator Analysis in default PAGnet.

Before starting the demonstration, you need to load the PAGnet package:


Start analysis:

# prepare input for analysis


## Input 1: 'rnet', a dataframe with two colmn (transcription factors and target genes) as regulatory network
## Input 2: 'tflist', the users also need to provide a character vector of TFs (or only interested TFs)
## Input 3: 'signature',  a character vector of locus tag should be provide as signature genes

# Master Regulator Analysis
## Use QS related genes as example signature genes

 mra_results <- pagnet.mra(rnet=pagnet,tflist=tf,signature = qs, 
                            pValueCutoff = 0.05)

# The results will be returned

PAGnet also provides a local shiny interface to perform MRA in PAGnet with signature gene sets in Gene Ontology (GO) and KEGG databases obtained from Pseudomonas Genome DB. Call local shiny interface:
