Interactions between transcription factors and target genes form regulatory networks that control target gene expression. Regulatory networks contain canonical motifs, including the feed forward loop (FFL), single input module (SIM), and multiple input module (MIM) (Fig. 1 ). A challenge for network analysis is to identify and enumerate the motifs, required to illuminate their biological significance. Although there is consensus about the definition of the FFL, published definitions of the SIM… 
Investigating transcriptional regulation: from analysis of complex networks to discovery of cis-regulatory elements.
TLDR
Some of the available computational methodologies for studying transcriptional regulatory networks as well as their interpretation are reviewed.
A systematic analysis of a mi-RNA inter-pathway regulatory motif
TLDR
This paper presents the result of a systems biology study aimed at analyzing a high-level inter-pathway regulatory motif called Pathway Protection Loop, not previously described, in which miRNAs seem to play a crucial role in the successful behavior and activation of a pathway.
Neighbourhoods in the yeast regulatory network in different physiological states
TLDR
It seems apt to regard the components of the regulatory network as 'software', and the responses to changes in state, 'reprogramming', based on analysis of changes in the local structure of the network.
Network motifs that recur across species, including gene regulatory and protein–protein interaction networks
TLDR
This study is the first formal review of recurring, intracellular network motifs across species, and finds 10 recurring motifs found to recur across both protein–protein interaction networks and gene regulatory networks.
Spatial organization of the transcriptional regulatory network of Saccharomyces cerevisiae
TLDR
This study constructed the TRN of the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae and placed it in the context of 3D genome model and analyzed the spatial organization of the yeast TRN on four levels: global feature, central nodes, hierarchical structure and network motifs.
Spatial organization of the transcriptional regulatory network of Saccharomyces cerevisiae
TLDR
This study constructed the TRN of the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae and placed it in the context of a 3D genome model and analyzed the spatial organization of the yeast TRN on four levels: global features, central nodes, hierarchical structure and network motifs.
Construction and verification of the transcriptional regulatory response network of Streptococcus mutans upon treatment with the biofilm inhibitor carolacton
TLDR
The network approach used in this study revealed important regulators and interactions as part of the response mechanisms of S. mutans biofilm cells to carolacton and opens a door for further studies into novel drug targets against streptococci.
Structural and dynamical analysis of biological networks.
TLDR
Biological networks are dynamic both on the evolutionary time- scale, and on the much shorter time-scale of physiological processes, so there is no unique network for a given cellular process, but potentially many realizations, each with different properties as a consequence of regulatory mechanisms.
On the origin of distribution patterns of motifs in biological networks
TLDR
Certain topological features of biological networks give rise naturally to the common appearance of the motifs, and it is questioned whether frequencies of occurrences are reasonable evidence that the structures of motifs have been selected for their functional contribution to the operation of networks.

Network motifs in the transcriptional regulation network of Escherichia coli
TLDR
This work applied new algorithms for systematically detecting network motifs to one of the best-characterized regulation networks, that of direct transcriptional interactions in Escherichia coli, and finds that much of the network is composed of repeated appearances of three highly significant motifs.
Genomic analysis of regulatory network dynamics reveals large topological changes
TLDR
The dynamics of a biological network on a genomic scale is presented, by integrating transcriptional regulatory information and gene-expression data for multiple conditions in Saccharomyces cerevisiae, using an approach for the statistical analysis of network dynamics, called SANDY, combining well-known global topological measures, local motifs and newly derived statistics.
Transcriptional Regulatory Networks in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
TLDR
This work determines how most of the transcriptional regulators encoded in the eukaryote Saccharomyces cerevisiae associate with genes across the genome in living cells, and identifies network motifs, the simplest units of network architecture, and demonstrates that an automated process can use motifs to assemble a transcriptional regulatory network structure.
Network motifs: simple building blocks of complex networks.
TLDR
Network motifs, patterns of interconnections occurring in complex networks at numbers that are significantly higher than those in randomized networks, are defined and may define universal classes of networks.

Description bttroductian. A maximal complete subgraph (clique) is a complete subgraph that is not contained in any other complete subgraph. A recent paper [1] describes a number of techniques to find
