Functional Annotation of ANimal Genomes (FAANG) Project
— A coordinated international action to accelerate Genome to Phenome

FAANG Integrative Genomics and Network Biology (FNB) Group

The short names: faang-analysis-network // faang-network-biology

The goals:

  • Generate a panel of recommended methods and software tools that robustly integrate different data types with a focus on network analysis and to provide feedback on the quality of and feasibility of integrated/network approaches.

  • Define community standards for statistical methods that make inferences from integrated data and to develop recommended methods for establishing statistical significance (e.g. making sense of correlations and profiles).

  • The group would discuss and evaluate database and storage methods for large biological networks using FAANG data.

  • The group would advise other FAANG groups on experimental design issues relevant to downstream integrative genomics and network biology analyses (e.g. minimum sample sizes required for correlation-based network approaches).

  • The group would establish an active, inclusive and friendly community for animal scientists interested in the application of integrative genomics and network biology.
