KnetMiner (with a silent K) stands for Knowledge Network Miner and is a suite of tools to integrate, search and explore large biological knowledge networks. It is used to accelerate gene discovery, decision making and hypothesis generation across species.
KnetMiner performs over 70 graph queries to find direct or indirect links between genes and user provided search terms. It is very fast through smart graph-indexing and has features like real-time user feedback and query term suggestions.
The KnetMiner code is open-source and customisable. You can host your own KnetMiner server or use the paid Genestack-KnetMiner Platform to easily deploy a KnetMiner server in the cloud. Contact us for more information.
The gene ranking algorithm takes into account how specific each evidence concept is to a gene and the frequency of all evidence concepts in a gene-evidence network. We are constantly exploring new ways of ranking genes.
