Identification of key pathways and genes in carotid atherosclerosis through bioinformatics analysis of RNA-seq data

PPI network constructing and hub gene screening of DEGs. (A) PPI network constructed using STRING Online Database contained 1055 nodes and 1883 edges. (B) PPI network was optimized through Cytoscape software. (C) 20 hub genes identified through degree method in cytoHubba. PPI network: protein-protein interaction network.
