1 Abstract

Co-expressed gene-set enrichment analysis, cogena, is a workflow for gene set enrichment analysis of co-expressed genes. The cogena worklow (Figure 1) proceeds from co-expression analysis using a range of clustering methods, through to gene set enrichment analysis based on a range of pre-defined gene sets. Cogena can be applied to a number of different analytical scenarios dependent on the gene set used. Currently cogena is pre-built with gene sets from Msigdb and Connectivity Map, allowing pathway analysis and drug repositioning analysis respectively, the user can also add custom genes sets to expand analytical functionality further.
