Abstract:
Understanding how the topology of a network regulates, influences, constrains or even enhances the dynamics upon it is becoming the key question of research on biological networks. Within this talk I will qualitatively look at this link between topology and dynamics and discuss a few observations from implementing simple dynamic processes on complex networks. By simulating such processes on real networks we can, e.g., consider them as noise-processing devices or ask for the capacity of a network to host complex dynamic behavior. The general method will be illustrated on metabolic network and transcriptional regulatory networks.
In the case of metabolic networks, for example, we find that their response is highly specific: Complex dynamics are systematically reduced on metabolic networks compared to networks with similar topologies. Already small topological modifications substantially enhance the capacity of a network to host complex dynamic behavior and thus reduce its regularizing powers. This exceptionally pronounced regularization of dynamics encoded in the topology may explain, why steady-state behavior is ubiquitous in metabolism.
