After the publication of this work , we became aware of the fact that we inadvertently failed to include the work of Chen et al.  when listing previous studies that use PPIs to prioritize disease candidate genes. In a pioneering study , Chen et al. used a initial gene list for Alzheimer's from the OMIM database, expanded it based on protein interactions, and proposed a scoring function to identify other Alzheimer's disease causal genes based on graph-connectedness.
