Abstract: 
Networks are ubiquitous across social and biological systems. Life arises as highly coordinated interactions between biological molecules and elements, such as nucleic acids, proteins, metabolites, and so on. Thus it is critical to map and understand the network interactions in biological systems. As in the case of non-network data, clusteringoften called "community detection" in the context of network scienceplays a fundamental role in network analysis. In this talk, I will first discuss special aspects of network clustering that distinguish it from clustering techniques in general, then discuss tricky issues in comparing clusterings with each other.
