Abstract:


Background: Complexity and dynamicity of biological events is a reason to use comprehensive and holistic approaches to deal with their difficulty. Currently with advances in omics data generation, network-based approaches are used frequently in different areas of computational biology and bioinformatics to solve problems in a systematic way. Also, there are many applications and tools for network data analysis and manipulation which their goal is to facilitate the way of improving our understandings of inter/intra cellular interactions.

Methods: In this article, we introduce CatbNet, a multi network analyzer application which is prepared for network comparison objectives.

Result and Conclusion: CatbNet uses many topological features of networks to compare their structure and foundations. One of the most prominent properties of this application is classified network analysis in which groups of networks are compared with each other.
