Mesoscale Attributes. Top: number of detected modules N
as a function of the normalized rescaling parameter r. The mesoscale has been screened only for a range of r yielding an interpretable amount of modules. DU and DS topologies show more than one persistent mesoscopic plateau, whereas the UU topology only has a single plateau made up of around N
≈ 200 communities. Beyond r = 0.5, no other stable plateau can be found for this topology. Bottom: the detected community structures for the three versions of the TRN of M. tuberculosis are compared to the functional partitions in Tuberculist. DS is the only network that shows significant values of similarity, in terms of the Asymmetric Wallace Index, against the functional partition for a large range of r values.
