The Luthey-Schulten Group has developed a detailed tutorial that demonstrates the use of the NetworkView plugin.
Please go to the following URL and download the tutorial near the bottom of the page entitled: Dynamical Network Analysis.
The simplest networks consist of sets of nodes and edges that connect pairs of nodes. For example, in proteinĚprotein interaction networks, nodes represent individual proteins, and if two proteins interact with one another, an edge is drawn between their nodes.
The NetworkView plugin can display dynamical network representations by loading
a network file via
File | Load Network.... Once the network is
loaded, you can choose to perform "Action"s on the network (or subnetworks,
defined by the choices made in the
Node Selection section of the
plugin), listed in the box

Node Selectionsection of the plugin to choose individual communities to perform Actions upon.
Critical nodes between communities can be displayed by choosing the proper
