Local Properties of Biological Networks
The study of biological networks has led to the development of a variety of measures for characterizing network properties at different levels. Global analysis provides summary measures such as diameter, clustering coefficients, and degree distribution that describe the network as a whole, whereas local properties, such as the occurrences of motifs and graphlets allow us to focus on specific phenomena within the network.
Local characteristics are suitable to study networks that are incompletely explored; in particular, they faithfully capture the neighborhoods of these parts of the networks that are better studied. In this talk I will describe several methods to analyze both protein-protein interaction (which are undirected graphs) as well as regulation networks (which are directed) along with the biological consequences that they have yielded.

Workshop “Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango” – 2nd Edition
Title: Workshop Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango – 2nd Edition
Dates: October 25-26, 2022
Location: This workshop will be held in a virtual way
The topic of this workshop is metabolism in general, with a special focus, although not exclusive, on parasitology. Besides an exploration of the biological, biochemical and biomedical aspects, the workshop will also aim at presenting some of the mathematical modelling, algorithmic theory and software development that have become crucial to explore such aspects.
This workshop is being organised in the context of two projects, both with the Inria European Team Erable. One of the projects involves a partnership with the University of São Paulo (USP), in São Paulo, Brazil, more specifically the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics (IME) and the Institute of Biomedical Sciences – Inria Associated Team Capoeira – and the other involves the Inesc-ID/IST in Portugal, ETH in Zürich and EMBL in Heidelberg – H2020 Twinning Project Olissipo.
The workshop is open to all members of these two projects but also, importantly, to the community in general.
