An introduction to biological networks and methods for theiranalysis Analysis of Biological Networks is the first book of itskind to provide readers with a comprehensive introduction to thestructural analysis of biological networks at the interface ofbiology and computer science. The book begins with a brief overviewof biological networks and graph theory/graph algorithms and goeson to explore: global network properties, network centralities,network motifs, network clustering, Petri nets, signal transductionand gene regulation networks, protein interaction networks,metabolic networks, phylogenetic networks, ecological networks, andcorrelation networks. Analysis of Biological Networks is a self-containedintroduction to this important research topic, assumes no expertknowledge in computer science or biology, and is accessible toprofessionals and students alike. Each chapter concludes with asummary of main points and with exercises for readers to test theirunderstanding of the material presented. Additionally, an FTP sitewith links to author-provided data for the book is available fordeeper study. This book is suitable as a resource for researchers in computerscience, biology, bioinformatics, advanced biochemistry, and thelife sciences, and also serves as an ideal reference text forgraduate-level courses in bioinformatics and biologicalresearch.
