Example illustrating the creation of the identity network models.

A sample data set consisting of four proteins (A, B, C, D) shaped as circles and five ligands (lg1, lg2, lg3, lg4, lg5) shaped as diamonds. For each protein, the ligands that it binds to are given together. A sample Tanimoto coefficient (Tc) matrix is also provided for the ligand pairs. (The same example is used in the next figure.) In the identity networks, A and B are connected since they have two common ligands, lg1 and lg5. Only the weight of the edge between A and B changes depending on the weighting method used.
