[16, 17] proposed the logic analysis of phylogenetic profiles (LAPP) and demonstrated the benefits of identifying the relationships among gene triplets, as they have a greater likelihood of yielding the network organization of the interactions among gene triplets which forms the gene logical network. In fact, it can be considered as a weighted and directed graph that deciphers different logic interactions among gene node, including first-order and second-order logical relationships by the uncertainty coefficient at some thresholds (for details about the gene logical network, see Wang et al.
