If such a motif could be found, one may infer that it may be possible, so to speak, to “separate the wheat from the chaff” with proper handling. That is, instead of analyzing the entire array, one may be able to selectively focus on a part without much loss of information. Were it to be the case, thus, we gain technically in efficiency and effectiveness, for we can target more narrowly.

They link structures with functions. In these works, network motifs are demonstrated to play key information processing roles in biological regulation networks (Shen-Orr et al. 2002).

Of particular interest is the “regulator gene,” involved in controlling the expression of one or more other genes.
