A discussion of a range of different kinds of biological networks. The chapter starts with a discussion of biochemical networks such metabolic and protein interaction networks and methods for determining their structure, particularly focusing on high-throughput methods such as the yeast two-hybrid screen. Next is a discussion of neural networks and other networks in the brain, along with measurement techniques such as slice electron microscopy, optical microscopy, transsynaptic tracing, functional MRI, and diffusion MRI. Finally, there is a discussion of ecological networks, and particularly food webs.
Keywords: Metabolic network, protein interaction network, genetic regulatory network, co-immunoprecipitation, yeast two-hybrid screen, affinity purification, neural network, neuron, food web, mutualistic network
