A comparison of running times (in seconds) for several sample schemas annotated with GO molecular function slim terms on the S. cerevisiae interaction network using Narada, NetMatch and NetGrep. Of the previous methods, Narada and NetMatch are chosen as they can be run off-the-shelf for these schemas; note, however, that Narada only handles linear topology queries. All reported running times are for search and output only. In the case of the Y-stars, the first term shown annotates the central node. The schemas shown have between 10 and 11,000 instances in S. cerevisiae.
