DPPI: It uses a convolutional neural network to predict PPI interactions by using only the protein sequences.
ConvexAlign: It finds a global alignment between multiple input PPI networks by convex optimization of a scoring function composed of sequence similarity, topological score, and interaction conservation score.
HubAlign: A software for the alignment of protein-protein interaction networks that is based upon the observation that topologically important proteins in a PPI network usually are much more conserved and thus, more likely to be aligned. HubAlign uses a minimum-degree heuristic algorithm to estimate the topological and functional importance of a protein from the global network topology information.
NETAL: It uses a greedy method, based on the alignment scoring matrix, which is derived from both biological and topological information of input networks to find the best global network alignment. The running time of NETAL is much less than other available methods.

I like running. Sometimes, I run half marathon ;)
I enjoy backpacking and mountain climbing. I've done off-trail backpacking in Alaska and stood on top of Damavand, the tallest mountain of Iran (about 18,400 ft).
