The development of high-throughput techniques in biology is transforming biology in a data-rich discipline. We will consider in this project integrated biological networks: these networks deal with all the gene interactions mediated by metabolism, regulation and protein-protein interactions. We will deploy machine learning tools that will use topological data from these graphs, expression data, genomic organization and cellular localization to extract relevant biological information such as detection of drug target genes, morbid genes for humans or essential genes for bacteria. In this project we will use these information to investigate the influence of topological properties on synthetic lethality and conditionally essential genes. (AU)
