Graph Theory and Networks in Biology
Mason, Oliver and Verwoerd, Mark (2007) Graph Theory and Networks in Biology. IET Systems Biology, 1 (2). pp. 89-119. ISSN 1751-8857
In this paper, we present a survey of the use of graph theoretical techniques in Biology. In particular, we discuss recent work on identifying and modelling the structure of bio-molecular networks, as well as the application of centrality measures to interaction networks and research on the hierarchical structure of such networks and network motifs. Work on the link between structural network properties and dynamics is also described, with emphasis on synchronization and disease propagation.
