HERMES Version 1.0

HERMES v1.0 is provided as a MATLAB function. It takes in an input file that includes expression profiles for two ceRNAs followed by expression profiles of their miRNA regulators. The application includes the following files.

  • README – usage instructions
  • sample_input – sample input file
  • sample_output – sample output file
  • Hermes.m – the Hermes MATLAB function
  • mi_ap_cond.m – required subroutines for Hermes
