In the post genomic era, we notice that network theory has substantially involved with biology for instance we can mention about protein-protein interaction networks (PPI network), protein-metabolite combined networks, gene regulatory networks etc. To understand a living organism as a system we first need to understand a cell as a system for which we need to comprehensively understand the functions of each gene/protein/metabolite and how they work as an individual or in a group. Conducting study on static and dynamic properties of the aforementioned networks will gather knowledge bit by bit towards this goal. In fact the concept of networks can be utilized in many ways to extract useful information from huge pile of biological data. My aim is to contribute in this area of science as much as possible by developing and finding out necessary algorithms and by applying them to real biological data.
