A matrix-based multilevel approach to identify functional protein modules
Identifying functional modules is believed to reveal most cellular processes. There have been many computational approaches to investigate the underlying biological structures (Bader and Hogue, 2003; Dhillon et al., 2005; Krogan et al., 2006; Ramadan et al., 2005; Xiong et al., 2005; Zhang et al., 2004). A spectral clustering method plays a critical role identifying functional modules in a yeast protein-protein network (Ramadan et al., 2005). We present an unweighted-graph version of a multilevel spectral algorithm which more accurately identifies protein complexes with less computational time.
