<p>All life on Earth is related, so that some molecular interactions are common across almost all living cells, with the number of common interactions increasing as we look at more closely related species. In particular, we expect the {\it protein-protein interaction} (PPI) networks of closely-related species to share high levels of similarity. This similarity may facilitate the transfer of functional knowledge between model species and human. {\it Multiple Network Alignment} is the process of uncovering the connection similarity between 3 or more networks simultaneously.
