The aim of this study was to identify the hub genes in breast cancer and provide further insight into the tumorigenesis and development of breast cancer. To explore the hub genes in breast cancer, we performed an integrated bioinformatics analysis. Two gene expression profiles were downloaded from the GEO database. The differentially expressed genes (DEGs) were identified by using the "limma" package. Then, we performed Gene Ontology (GO) and Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes (KEGG) enrichment analysis to explore the functional annotation and potential pathways of the DEGs. Next, protein-protein interaction (PPI) network analysis and weighted gene coexpression network analysis (WGCNA) were conducted to screen for hub genes. To confirm the reliability of the identified hub genes, we obtained TCGA-BRCA data by using WGCNA to screen for genes that were strongly related to breast cancer. By combining the results from the GEO and TCGA datasets, we finally identified 15 real hub genes in breast cancer. Finally, we performed an overall survival analysis to explore the connection between the expression of hub genes and the overall survival time of breast cancer patients. We found that for all hub genes, higher expression was associated with significantly shorter overall survival times among breast cancer patients.
