Abstract

Graphs are a powerful data structure that can be applied to several problems in bioinformatics. Graph matching, in its diverse forms, is an important operation on graphs, involved when there is the need to compare two graphs or to find substructures into larger structures. Many graph matching algorithms exist, and their relative efficiency depends on the kinds of graphs they are applied to. In this paper we will consider some popular and freely available matching algorithms, and will experimentally compare them on graphs derived from bioinformatics applications, in order to help the researchers in this field to choose the right tool for the problem at hand.
