Efficient Algorithms for Enriching Traditional Protein-protein Interaction Networks with Proteins Alternative Conformations

The common practice in structural PPI networks is to consider just one specific conformation for each protein. Yet it is not a comprehensive representation as it neglects the conformational changes of proteins which may lead to different protein interactions, functions, and downstream signaling. We propose a new representation for structural PPI networks which inspects the different conformations of proteins.
