Study of Connection between articulation Points and Network motifs in Complex Networks
TLDR
This paper performs a study on the co-existence of these two properties, Articulation Points and Network Motifs, and how their appearance is correlated, by using results obtained in analysing a variety of real-world networks.
Scale-free networks are rare
TLDR
A severe test of their empirical prevalence using state-of-the-art statistical tools applied to nearly 1000 social, biological, technological, transportation, and information networks finds robust evidence that strongly scale-free structure is empirically rare, while for most networks, log-normal distributions fit the data as well or better than power laws.
An algorithm for network community structure determination by surprise
An algorithm for network community structure detection by Surprise
TLDR
This work developed a new algorithm based on the Surprise function and created a novel benchmark, a set of artificial networks with a seeded community structure, to compare the performance of competing algorithms.
Identifying Disease Related Genes by Network Representation and Convolutional Neural Network
TLDR
A novel network representation method to transfer individual vertices together with their surrounding topological structures into image-like datasets that can be applied directly in a Convolutional Neural Network-based method for identifying cancer-related genes.
Implementation of homology based and non-homology based computational methods for the identification and annotation of orphan enzymes: using Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv as a case study
TLDR
Methods are developed that can be generalized to augment homology-based annotation to identify missing enzyme coding genes and to predict a candidate protein for them and thereby, the potential for identifying novel drug targets.
Improving tobacco social contagion models using agent-based simulations on networks
TLDR
It is suggested that networks are essential for modelling smoking behaviour and that an agent-based model (ABM) can be used to develop network-based intervention strategies and policies for tobacco control.

Functional topology in a network of protein interactions
TLDR
The authors' models provide a means for understanding the complex wiring underlying cellular function, and enable us to predict essentiality, genetic interaction, function, protein complexes and cellular pathways.
The powerful law of the power law and other myths in network biology.
TLDR
Network analysis provides a powerful frame for understanding the function and evolution of biological processes, provided it is brought to an appropriate level of description, by focussing on smaller functional modules and establishing the link between their topological properties and their dynamical behaviour.
Statistical mechanics of complex networks
TLDR
A simple model based on these two principles was able to reproduce the power-law degree distribution of real networks, indicating a heterogeneous topology in which the majority of the nodes have a small degree, but there is a significant fraction of highly connected nodes that play an important role in the connectivity of the network.
How Scale-Free Are Biological Networks
TLDR
10 published datasets of various biological interactions are studied and goodness-of-fit tests are performed to determine whether the given data is drawn from the power-law distribution.
STRING v10: protein–protein interaction networks, integrated over the tree of life
TLDR
H hierarchical and self-consistent orthology annotations are introduced for all interacting proteins, grouping the proteins into families at various levels of phylogenetic resolution in the STRING database.
Scale-free networks in cell biology
TLDR
The observed topologies of cellular networks give clues about their evolution and how their organization influences their function and dynamic responses, and the opportunity to describe quantitatively a network of hundreds or thousands of interacting components is offered.

The Structure of Complex Networks: Theory and Applications
TLDR
The second part of this book is devoted to the analysis of genetic, protein residue, protein-protein interaction, intercellular, ecological and socio-economic networks, including important breakthroughs as well as examples of the misuse of structural concepts.
