I have 10 tumor samples and I'm interested in identifying lncRNA function. I see that for WGCNA, minimum sample size should be 20.
So, to identify the lncRNAs function - I initially wanted to detect cis and trans protein coding genes of my interested lncRNAs and do a Pearson / spearman correlations with those genes and select genes with p-value < 0.05 and correlation coefficient ≥ 0.5 and do a pathway analysis.
Are there any tools through which I can get the cis and trans genes of lncRNAs? If yes, could you please show Mme any example how to get that?
Any help is appreciated.
