Abstract

Disclosed is a description of a novel method for pathway classification, which combines information extracted from gene expression (microarray) data and knowledge from well understood gene regulatory pathways (networks). In this method a compendium of pathways is created based on perturbed cellular states, the compendium is used in conjunction with an augmented graph-matching algorithm for classification of uncharacterized pathways.
