Gene network analysis was used to prioritize VSR genes. WormNet v2, a probabilistic functional gene network model was queried with the 225 JV3-specific response (VSR) genes. 128 of the 225 genes are connected to one another (AUC = 0.6776, p = 2.81E-22). a Network was visualized using Cytoscape 3.5.1. Blue circles represent individual genes and grey lines represent known or predicted connections between genes. Genes are numbered and sized based on rank (Supplemental Table 9, Additional File 3); darker blue circles indicate genes that were chosen for functional analysis. b Top 22 ranked genes. Rank is determined based on score, which is calculated based on number of connections and the strength of evidence for those connections. Regulation indicates direction of differential expression in response to JV3 compared to all other strains
