Abstract

GraphGrep is an application-independent method for querying graphs, finding all the occurrences of a subgraph in a database of graphs. The interface to Graph-Grep is a regular expression graph query language Glide that combines features from Xpath and Smart. Glide incorporates both single node and variable-length wildcards. Our algorithm uses hash-based fingerprinting to represent the graphs in an abstract form and to filter the database. GraphGrep has been tested on databases of size up to 16,000 molecules and performs well in this entire range.
