cbg-ethz/dce: Pathway Enrichment Based on Differential Causal Effects

Compute differential causal effects (dce) on (biological) networks. Given observational samples from a control experiment and non-control (e.g., cancer) for two genes A and B, we can compute differential causal effects with a (generalized) linear regression. If the causal effect of gene A on gene B in the control samples is different from the causal effect in the non-control samples the dce will differ from zero. We regularize the dce computation by the inclusion of prior network information from pathway databases such as KEGG.
