Complex systems maintain their basic functions even under errors and failures (cell mutations; Internet router breakdowns)
Topological error tolerance

Yeast protein network
- lethality and topological position -
Highly connected proteins are more essential (lethal)...

Does the application of standart clustering
algorithms reflect real modules well?
Since e.g. one protein can be part of more
than one protein complex overlapping
clustering algorithms should give better
Small subnetworks that appear in real world networks significantly more often than in random graphs.

Topology and evolution
- General distribution of orthologs:
E = N(o)/N(p)
- degree-dependent distribution
ek = Nk(o)/Nk
Orthologous Excess Retention:
ERk = ek/E

high clustering = high quality of interaction
Goldberg and Roth, PNAS, 2003
Protein-protein interaction data
are highly flawed:
90% false positives, 50% false negatives
Von Mering et al., Nature, 2002
How stable are these results?

until a maximum is reached.
All edges shown with Cvw > 1.
Colorcode red: Cvw > 4, yellow: Cvw > 3,
green: Cvw > 2, blue: Cvw > 1
Bozdech et al. PLoS, 2003
What does that mean?
Validation of results?
