Module network inference is a statistical method to reconstruct gene regulatory networks, which uses probabilistic graphical models to learn modules of coregulated genes and their upstream regulatory programs from genome-wide gene expression and other omics data. Here, we review the basic theory of module network inference, present protocols for common gene regulatory network reconstruction scenarios based on the Lemon-Tree software, and show, using human gene expression data, how the software can also be applied to learn differential module networks across multiple experimental conditions.
