B) The lower right portion with the overlap at gene ABL1. 17a-c). We also used BioGrapher to compute the clustering coefficient and the diameter of the network. 11a. Note how sparse it is. The maximal cliques are insignificant because maximal cliques of size two are just connected pairs. The arrowheads do let us see that there are hubs with three to seven spokes. 17. The overall graph is broken into many small pieces and those pieces that are connected are more like a chain than a crowded neighborhood.

These do not all share the obfuscation critiqued above. 18 clearly demonstrates a chain of hubs. Keurentjes et al. [42] came to an important conclusion based upon their analysis of this network. ” Their inference is that cis-regulation of closely linked genes on a chromosome is more important than trans-regulation of distantly separated genes or genes on different chromosomes. We invite you to explore further their data set of 176 of the 192 genes known to be involved in flowering Arabidopsis. 18), namely, that it is a tree and hence a planar graph.

11. How many isolated vertices are in the competition graph? 9. The competition number for a graph G, denoted k(G), is the least number of isolated vertices that need to be added to G so that G is the competition graph for an acyclic directed graph. Indeed, any graph can be the competition graph for an acyclic directed graph by adding adding a sufficient number of isolated vertices to it. 12. 13. 12. 13. 20. In this example, three isolated vertices were added to make the graph a competition graph.
