Abstract:

High-throughput technologies have determined physical interactions for a significant fraction of proteins in several organisms. Taken together, these linkages form large protein interaction networks. Computational analysis of these networks can help uncover the functions of individual proteins as well their roles within larger pathways. In this talk, I will introduce novel methods for analyzing protein interaction networks and uncovering recurring means with which diverse biological processes are carried out. Our approach lends insight into the organizational principles of protein networks by identifying cellular "building blocks" which can be used to help uncover protein pathways and protein function.
