—Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) form a critical component in modern computing applications; given their size, ability to process and communicate information, and to sense stimuli, they are a promising part of The Internet of Things. However, they are also plagued by reliability and node failure problems. Here we address these problems by using E. coli Gene(More)
Motifs are patterns of recurring connections among the genes of genetic networks that occur more frequently than would be expected from randomized networks with the same degree sequence. Although the abundance of certain three-node motifs, such as the feed-forward loop, is positively correlated with a networks' ability to tolerate moderate disruptions to(More)
Understanding relationships between architectural properties of gene-regulatory networks (GRNs) has been one of the major goals in systems biology and bioinformatics, as it can provide insights into, e.g., disease dynamics and drug development. Such GRNs are characterized by their scale-free degree distributions and existence of network motifs - i.e.,(More)
Social network analytic approaches have been previously proposed to identifying key metrics of physician care coordination [1]. Optimizing care coordination among physicians is a primary national concern for which yields significant cuts in medical care costs. We present a variation of physician collaboration metrics namely: 'care density', with our(More)
Feed-forward loops are hierarchical three-node transcriptional subnetworks, wherein a top-level protein regulates the activity of a target gene via two paths: a direct-regulatory path, and an indirect route, whereby the top-level proteins act implicitly through an intermediate transcription factor. Using a transcriptional network of the model bacterium(More)
