Resilience and Structure of Metabolic Networks

Victor Hugo de Mello Pessoa, Cynthia de Oliveira Lage Ferreira

Resumo


In this article we study the behavior of two types of metabolic networks, reaction and compound networks, under the effect of random and intentional attacks. We studied these phenomena in the networks of four species: worm C. elegans, fly D. melanogaster, yeast S. cerevisiae and H. sapiens. We also analyze the relationship between robustness and the entropy of the degree distribution. We calculate the correlation between six topological measurements of the networks and this entropy.
