Creating, expanding and analyzing a BisoGenet network. a) Process of creating and expanding a network. The dashed lines divide the input node from the results; first, of creating a network and second of expanding it. First, CPM identifier is given by the user and a network is created by choosing to include neighbours up to a distance of 1 edge. Next the resulting network is expanded by choosing the added nodes and applying the same method as in first step. b) An example of the use of BisoGenet option for finding equivalent nodes or nodes with the same set of neighbors. A list of set of equivalents nodes is displayed with the number of equivalences and nodes in the set. Components of each set can be highlighted in the network by placing the cursor on it, additionally a transparency filter can be applied and the set of common nodes can be also highlighted.
