Author Contributions

TPM conceived the experimental design, and together with TCM developed the network discovery pipeline. TCM wrote and implemented all bioinformatic tools. TPM, TCM, CM, JDT, HDP, RS, CMS, and SAG conceived, implemented, and developed Web tools and interfaces. TPM, AB, SPH, and MY collected tissue and performed microarray time courses. GB constructed element fusions and performed in vivo luciferase imaging. TCM and FH performed statistical analysis. SAK and JC provided reagents, and together with TPM, TCM, GB, and SPH wrote the paper.
