Comparing node degree between networks. To assess the node degree differences between networks, values of the node degree in the control network were plotted against the number of edges retained in the schizophrenia network. Each gene is represented by a dot in the plot, and all 12,582 genes were plotted. The presence of data points that deviate from the identity line indicate differences in gene-to-gene connections between the two networks. A histogram is also provided (inset) to illustrate that the distribution mean of the overlap is about fifty percent.
