The importance of the use of networks to model and analyse biological data and the interplay of bio-molecules is widely recognised. Consequently, many algorithms for the analysis and the comparison of networks (such as alignment algorithms) have been developed in the past. Recently, many different approaches tried to integrate into a single model the interplay of different molecules, such as genes, transcription factors and microRNAs. A possible formalism to model such scenario comes from node… Expand
