Genes Work in Networks
Professor David Anderson explains that individual genes do not exist in a vacuum. Rather, genes interact with one another as part of a network.
So, as far we know, no individual gene exists in a vacuum. All of the genes exist as part of a network of interactions with other genes and other proteins and it is this functioning in a network that gives the gene the particular role that it has.

Professor David Anderson discusses how genes, proteins, and the brain interact.
Professor Seth Grant explains that a small world protein network is a network where all proteins are closely connected.
Networks are the engines that drive our brain, they exist at every level of organization. Genes, proteins, and neurons all form highly integrated complex networks.

Professor David Anderson explains that the mushroom body is a structure in the insect brain involved in learning and memory. It has been compared to the cerebral cortex in humans.
Professor William Kristan explains that synaptic networks differ from neuronal networks in that they are relevant to HOW cells interact.
During a court case in Germany that spanned two decades, evidence was carefully examined to determine if, in fact, Anna Anderson was Anastasia Romanov.
Communication in brain cells is guided by interactions between genes and biochemicals at the synapse. These interactions can lead to the formation of new synapses.
