   About BioNetwork Lab

   Systematic study of complex interactions between molecular components is a new paradigm for characterizing molecular functions and functional pathways in a genome-wide scale. Modeling and analysis of structural behaviors of biomolecular networks from a topological perspective is a primary issue in current bioinformatics research. However, these tasks have been challenging because of the large scale and complex connectivity of biomolecular networks generated by high-throughput experiments.

Our research focuses on developing novel algorithms for functional knowledge discovery from the genome-wide biomolecular networks. Typical examples include protein interaction networks, gene regulatory networks and metabolic networks. These studies will have a great potential for various biomedical applications such as disease-related pathway determination and drug-target identification.
