Motif Counting


“In this article, we show how to apply the ‘color coding’ technique for counting non-induced occurrences of subgraph topologies in the form of trees and bounded treewidth subgraphs. Our algorithm can count all occurrences of motif G′ with k vertices in a network G with n vertices in time polynomial with n, provided k=O(log n).”
