  1. The number of nodes represent the total number of molecules involved, the number of edges represents the total number of interaction found, the clustering coefficient is calculated as C I = 2n I/k(k-1), where n I is the number of links connecting the k I neighbours of node I to each other, the network diameter is the largest distance between two nodes, the Averaged n°neighbours represent the mean number of connection of each node, the Char. path length gives the expected distance between two connected nodes.
