Abstract

The emergence of collective creative enterprise such as large scientific consortia is a unique feature in modern scientific research. We analyzed the temporal co-authorship network structures of ENCODE and modENCODE consortia. Our analysis revealed that the consortium members work closely as a community whereas non-members collaborate in the scale of a few laboratories. We also identified a few brokers playing an important role to facilitate collaborations with outside researchers.
