Largest connected component of the relevance network. Each node in the graph represents a gene and each edge corresponds to a Pearson correlation between two genes above the defined threshold (|r|>0.98). The size of each node is proportional to its degree. The graph included 96 nodes and 381 edges. Modularity was maximized to find communities in the graph. Four communities were found and labelled with color (red for community 1, yellow for community 2, green for community 3 and blue for community 4). The percentages represent the number of genes in each community. For each community, we studied biological processes with GO functional enrichment analysis. Communities 1, 2 and 3 were mainly involved in muscle development, such as cell division, cell adhesion and collagen. Community 4 was mainly involved in metabolism like the fatty acid one. All enriched GO Terms are detailed in the. UNK stands for 'unknown’.
