Multi-netclust is an efficient tool to detect connected clusters in
large biological networks represented by different data matrices. It uses
user-defined threshold values to combine the matrices and to detect clusters connected in
all or in either of the data networks using a simple, memory-efficient graph algorithm.
The Multi-netclust web server allows one to combine up to five matrices;
however, the command-line version of the program can handle, in principle, an
arbitrary number of matrices. The program is fast and scalable: analyzing a
network of more than 1 million nodes and 100 million edges takes only a few minutes on an
ordinary computer. Multi-netclust is written in C/C++, and is freely available
under the GNU GPL license for Unix (Linux, FreeBSD and OSX) and Windows platforms. |
