IsoRank 2008 / IsoRankN 2009

:: DESCRIPTION

IsoRank is an algorithm for global alignment of multiple protein-protein interaction (PPI) networks. The intuition is that a protein in one PPI network is a good match for a protein in another network if the former’s neighbors are good matches for the latter’s neighbors.

IsoRankN (IsoRank-Nibble) is a global multiple-network alignment tool based on spectral clustering on the induced graph of pairwise alignment scores. IsoRankN outperforms existing algorithms for global network alignment in coverage and consistency on multiple alignments of the five available eukaryotic networks.
