I need a few suggestions from Cytoscape experts. I have qPCR results (60 genes) with fold change and log value too, and I want to perform enrichment analysis (gprofiler and Cytoscape or any software you can suggest). I have never done that kind of analysis before. I was watching people comments and videos but still, can’t figure out how to put my data for enrichment analysis in Cytoscape and how to camper group vice. I have this kind of data; please advise me how I can proceed better way to analysis.

Enrichment against what? Which question you want to answer?

As the previous comment suggested, you need to first figure out what your question is. For example, say your g-B column represents a condition fold change and your g-E column represents some treatment condition fold change. And you're interested in seeing what terms best describe the genes where g-B is up-regulated and g-E is down-regulated. In Cytoscape, you would do that by using an app like the stringApp to create a network, then create a filter that would select the nodes of interest and then use STRING's enrichment. On the other hand, if you are looking to find enriched terms for a set of genes that have similar expression patterns across all columns g-B:g-E, then I think you'll want to use something like GSEA (https://www.gsea-msigdb.org/gsea/index.jsp), which doesn't use Cytoscape at all.
