This is the first book of its kind to provide readers with a comprehensive introduction to the structural analysis of biological networks at the interface of biology and computer science. It begins with a brief overview of biological networks and graph theory/graph algorithms and goes on to explore: global network properties, network centralities, network motifs, network clustering, Petri nets, signal transduction and gene regulation networks, protein interaction networks, metabolic networks, phylogenetic networks, ecological networks, and correlation networks.
This book is a wonderful text for biological network analysis. It comprehensively presents a numbers of analysis tools and their applications for understanding real biological problems. This book is a must-read for entry-level students and researchers, and a complete reference source for experts. (Computing Reviews, March 6, 2009) "This book is an excellent introduction to the analysis of biological networks. The exercise provided after each chapter make the book suitable for self-study, and the extensive references provide the interested reader with good sources for further reading." (Computing Reviews, August 21, 2008)
