Identifying modular subnetworks. (a) Start with the largest connected component of the functional interaction network representing all genes whose expression has been measured. (b) Weight every edge of the network with the absolute value of the Spearman correlation between the two genes flanking it. (c) Identify age-related subnetworks by growing subnetworks iteratively out from seed nodes.
