Description

Multiplex network, a set of networks linked through interconnected layers, is a useful mathematical framework for data integration. Here, we present a general method to detect modules in multiplex networks and apply it in a specific biological context: to simultaneously cluster the genome-wide expression profiles of C. elegans and D. melanogaster generated by the ENOCDE and modENCODE consortia. The method revealed modules that are fundamentally cross-species and can either be conserved or species-specific. In general, the method could be applied in various contexts like the integration of different social networks.
