This study was conducted to detect and analyze modules, or clusters of genes, associated with sepsis, using RNAseq data obtained from 12 participants who died of sepsis and 12 participants who died of non-infectious critical illness while hospitalized.
This deposit contains the input data and parameters needed to reproduce the weighted gene co-expression network analysis (WGCNA) and gene enrichment analysis performed on this data. This analysis requires the R packages "WGCNA" version 1.68 and "DESeq2" version 1.22.2 available for download from bioconductor ( http://bioconductor.org). The external bioinformatics tool DAVID version 6.8 ( https://david.ncifcrf.gov/) was used as an additional gene enrichment analysis. Please see the supplemental methods document within this deposit and published research letter for more detailed information.
