Software List:

  1. Maximum Parallel Clique Enumeration (MCE): This is a scalable, parallel algorithm for the NP-hard clique enumeration problem ( (Matt Schmidt)
  2. Network Instance-Based Biased Subgraph Search (NIBBS): The method is capable of comparing hundreds of genome-scale metabolic networks to identify metabolic subsystems that are statistically biased toward phenotype-expressing organisms ( (Matt Schmidt)
  3. alpha-beta, Motif Finder : The method allows for identification of protein functional modules that, in addition to metabolic subsystems, could include their regulators, sensors, transporters, and even uncharacterized proteins that are predicted to be related to the target phenotype ( (Matt Schmidt)
  4. Bi-clustering: The approach allows for identification of phenotype-related modules that are analyzed to identify potential phenotype-related cross-talking pathways ( (Kevin Wilson)
  5. Dense ENriched Subgraph Enumeration (DENSE): The algorithm allows for incorporating partial prior knowledge about the proteins involved in a phenotype-related process and enriches that knowledge with newly identified sets of functionally associated proteins present in individual phenotype expressing organisms ( (William Hendrix)
  6. Subsystem Network Biomarkers: The method comparatively analyzes organismal networks to identify subsystems that are biased towards a phenotype without density or size constraints and also not requiring input parameters ( (Kanchana Padmanabhan)
