PhenoGeneRanker: A gene and phenotype prioritization tool

Bioconductor version: 3.17

This package is a gene/phenotype prioritization tool that utilizes multiplex heterogeneous gene phenotype network. PhenoGeneRanker allows multi-layer gene and phenotype networks. It also calculates empirical p-values of gene/phenotype ranking using random stratified sampling of genes/phenotypes based on their connectivity degree in the network.
