An interdisciplinary team, with direction from SESE’s Sara Walker, recently published results of their study of 67 biological networks.  In this study, the team sifted through data to better understand the root connections among the networks, measuring a number of mathematical features, simulating the networks’ behavior and looking for patterns to provide clues to what made them so special.

 The team includes lead author Bryan Daniels of the Center for Biosocial Complex Systems, Sara Walker and Hyunju Kim of SESE and the Beyond Center, Douglas Moore of the Beyond Center, Siyu Zhou of the Department of Physics, Bradley Karas and Harrison Smith of the School of Earth and Space Exploration, and Stuart Kauffman of the Institute for Systems Biology in Seattle.
