Research interest

Various methods of network clustering have been applied to reveal modular organisation in protein interaction networks (PINs). However, those clustering methods are mostly based on topological properties of the network. Therefore, we are focusing on developing methods for deriving functional modules from PINs using both structural information and domain knowledge from Gene Ontology. The modules obtained by these integrated methods are characterised by high functional cohesiveness among their members. Besides deriving modular structure, we also use the proposed methods to shed light on how the functional strength of interactions affects our view of global structural organization.
