This project incorporates the PubMed API to create a tool that builds networks representing research collaborations across life science fields. In each network, a node represents the last author on a publication, while an edge represents publications that share one or several authors. Our tool shows that most networks demonstrate characteristics of scale-free networks but cannot be statistically proven to be scale free. We performed case studies on three networks to describe the relationship between bottleneck authors and their collaborators.
