Using WGCNA on Normalized Nanostring dataset

Hello, I am wondering how I could use the WGCNA package to explore a dataset derived from Nanostring (normalised), 486 detected targets, three time points (12 replicates in each). i.e. how could I prepare the data, all the tutorials are very much focused on RNASeq or microarray data.

Regards

If properly normalized and log2 transformed WGCNA can be applied to different kind of data: amplicon sequencing, metabolomic, proteomic, abundance data from metagenomic sequencing. The tutorial will not change.

I would give it a try but I would not rely only on WGCNA.

Thanks you so much for that, could you recommend alternatives to WGCNA? I am using cemitool also, but I'm just learning the rope with these and working my way through them.

I can't recommend cemitool because I never used it. However, cemitool authors did a comparison whit WGCNA so you might want to take a look at the manuscript.
