Handbook On Biological Networks Hardback
Edited by Stefano Boccaletti, Yamir Moreno, Vito Latora
Part of the World Scientific Lecture Notes In Complex Systems series
Networked systems are all around us. The accumulated evidence of systems as complex as a cell cannot be fully understood by studying only their isolated constituents, giving rise to a new area of interest in research - the study of complex networks.
In a broad sense, biological networks have been one of the most studied networks, and the field has benefited from many important contributions.
By understanding and modeling the structure of a biological network, a better perception of its dynamical and functional behavior is to be expected.
This unique book compiles the most relevant results and novel insights provided by network theory in the biological sciences, ranging from the structure and dynamics of the brain to cellular and protein networks and to population-level biology.
