Key properties of Biological Networks

Networks Networks are a general language for describing complex systems of interacting entities. It also provides a shared vocabulary between fields: Computer Science, Social Science, Biology, Physics etc. Biological Networks A biological system is a complex network of various molecular entities such as genes, proteins and other biological molecules linked together by the interactions between these components. The study of the interactions between these molecular entities not only plays a crucial role in understanding biological phenomena but also provides insights about the molecular etiology of diseases as well as the discovery of putative drug targets.
