Community detection in the synaptic proteome

 

The human synaptic proteome is a complex collection of interacting proteins involved in signalling between nerve cells. Genetic mutations in the synaptic proteome are responsible for over 100 brain disease.1 Synaptic interactions can be represented as a network and previous work has shown differential enrichment of network communities for synaptic functions and neuropsychiatric disorders.2

The Armstrong and Simpson labs have recently completed a large scale network map of the synaptic proteome integrating all primary proteomic experiments between 2000-2017.

I will discuss community detection in this model of the synaptic proteome and how this can be used to understand the results of large scale genetic studies of complex traits and neuropsychiatric disorders.
