I have RNA-seq data for a plant species (Sorghum) that its genome is already mapped, any suggestion for doing network analysis? I prefer to do it without using R packages.

Thanks

Cytoscape is a wonderful tool. There are other great tools I also used for your reference.

  • Enrichr

If you want not just visualize but analyze I would go for these two tools:

From the same author as STRING:

SNOW, a web-based tool for the statistical analysis of protein-protein interaction networks

http://nar.oxfordjournals.org/content/37/suppl_2/W109.abstract?sid=b02562a2-c08e-46c0-af8a-ad2ddc0bbd0c

NETWORK MINER: Discovering the hidden sub-network component in a ranked list of genes or proteins derived from genomic experiments

http://nar.oxfordjournals.org/content/40/20/e158.abstract?sid=c828e255-831b-4a2e-9e30-ebae78705b8c

These tools are under Babelomics 5.0: functional interpretation for new generations of genomic data. In the menu functional

http://nar.oxfordjournals.org/content/early/2015/04/20/nar.gkv384

www.babelomics.org

You can also use http://cellmaps.babelomics.org/ to visualize your network interactively.

Double check on DAVID. I believe that resource has not been updated in a couple of years.

You are totally right, jeffk8900. The last updated time of DAVID is in 2009. Even though, sometimes it is still very helpful depends on our NGS data and biological question. Another very useful but not perfect tool for your information as the below.

STRING

Sorry I missed the year, as you said it comes from 2016

DAVID 6.8 (current beta release) May. 2016

-- The DAVID Knowledgebase completely rebuilt -- Entrez Gene integrated as the central identifier to allow for more timely updates while still incorporating Ensembl and Uniprot as integral data sources -- New GO category (GO Direct) provides GO mappings directly annotated by the source database (no parent terms included) -- New annotation categories -- New list identifier systems added for list uploading and conversion -- A few bugs fixed

igraph in R can now do everything and has many common metrics integrated, such as hub score, vertex degree, BC, etc.: Network plot from expression data in R using igraph

I thought that Cytoscape will help me to visualize the network analysis results not doing the analysis?

You are both right and not totally right. Cytoscape alone cannot do too many things. Please go to the Cytoscape APP Store. There are a lot of APPs can help you to perform gene set enrichment analysis based on most popular databases, e.g. GO, Wikipathways, KEGG, Reactome, and so on. There are also other many amazing functions performed by other APPs.
