BackgroundCytoscape is a well-developed flexible platform for visualization, integration and analysis of network data. Apart from the sophisticated graph layout and visualization routines, it hosts numerous user-developed plugins that significantly extend its core functionality. Earlier, we developed a network information flow framework and implemented it as a web application, called ITM Probe. Given a context consisting of one or more user-selected nodes, ITM Probe retrieves other network… 

Using biological networks to integrate, visualize and analyze genomics data

It is shown that network biology provides a powerful conceptual approach to integrate and find patterns in genome-wide genomic data but the limitations and caveats of these methods are discussed, of which researchers adopting these methods must remain aware.

Perturbation centrality: a novel centrality measure obtained by the general network dynamics tool, Turbine

The Turbine software and the perturbation centrality measure provide a large variety of novel options for future studies on network robustness, signaling mechanisms and drug design.

Extensive rewiring of the EGFR network in colorectal cancer cells expressing transforming levels of KRASG13D

How a common oncogenic KRAS mutation (KRASG13D) affects PPIN structure and function of the Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor (EGFR) network in colorectal cancer (CRC) cells is analyzed.

Understanding of how a common oncogenic KRAS mutation affects PPIN structure and function of the Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor (EGFR) network in colorectal cancer (CRC) cells is analyzed.

Perturbation Centrality and Turbine: A Novel Centrality Measure Obtained Using a Versatile Network Dynamics Tool

Turbine is introduced, a generic framework enabling fast simulation of any algorithmically definable dynamics on very large networks and a novel centrality measure: perturbation centrality is defined, inspired by communicating vessels.

Targets of drugs are generally, and targets of drugs having side effects are specifically good spreaders of human interactome perturbations

The results showed that in general, drug targets were better spreaders of perturbations than non-target proteins, and in particular, targets of drugs with side effects were also better spreades than targets of drug having no reported side effects in human protein-protein interaction networks.

Rigidity and flexibility in protein-protein interaction networks: a case study on neuromuscular disorders

The studies demonstrates core network of MDs as highly rigid, constituting of large intermodular edges and interconnected hub nodes suggesting high information transfer flow, and core skeleton of the network is organized in protein specific domain binding, which suggests neuro-muscular disorders may initiate due to interruption in molecular function related with the core and its aggression may depend on the tolerance level of the networks.
