For a selected assignee, Network Analysis gives an overview of collabrations of inventors/assignee, inventor/inventor, and the intensity of such collabrations. It can be used as a guide in looking for collabration, partnership and potential investment opportunity. Depending on requirement, the Network Analysis can be drilled down into various levels. Level 1 shows the network of the selected assignee and its inventors and secondary affiliations associated with these inventors. For Level 2 analysis, apart from what generated from Level 1 analysis, it shows extended network associated with the secondary affiliations/assignees. A Level 2 analysis on Medimmune LLC is illustrated in graph below.
The graph shows that the focused (primary) assignee, Medimmune LLC has strong collabrations with a secondary assignee, US Gov Nat Inst Health. It also shows that inventors including Yang Chin-Fen, Kemble George, Subbarao Kanta and Murphy Brian are affliated to both Medimmune LLC and US Gov Nat Inst Health, and the relative level of collabration between them.
