Unformatted text preview: 1 Phys 597A, CMPS 497E Graphs and Networks in Systems Biology Lecturer: Réka Albert email@example.com 122 Davey Laboratory Networks, networks everywhere • Network infrastructure, social networking • Network - a tool for understanding complex systems • Many non-identical elements connected by diverse interactions • E.g. interaction networks within cells: protein interactions, chemical reactions, gene regulation • Graph measures provide information on interaction graphs • Network models explain and predict properties of graph classes • Network topology influences network robustness and the dynamics of flows • E.g. dynamics of molecular interaction networks determines the behavior of cells. • Understand emergent properties – synchronization, phase transitions, homeostasis Suggested reading on networks 1.
