This paper attempts to identify a set of crucial genes for Esophageal Squamous Cell Carcinoma (ESCC) using Differential Expression analysis supported by gene enrichment analysis. Initially, we identify a subset of up-regulated and down-regulated genes based on adjusted P-value and log fold change value. Then, we construct co-expression network and PPI network on selected genes to investigate the interactions and associations among these genes. Finally, enrichment analysis is performed to filter out the most crucial subset of genes which are also evidenced to be associated with the ESCC. Three genes, namely TNC, COL1A1, and FN1 are found most closely relevant to ESCC.
