Description:

"Gene expression network" is the term used to describe the interplay, simple or complex, between two or more gene products in performing a specific cellular function. Although the delineation of such networks is complicated by the existence of multiple and subtle types of interaction between gene products, the use of high throughput functional genomics techniques and mathematical modeling provides a powerful approach to deciphering expression networks and revealing the molecular mechanisms of cell growth and function.
