    Abstract
    Modeling a protein functional network in concerned species is an efficient approach for identifying novel genes in certain biological pathways. Tea plant is an important commercial crop abundant in numerous characteristic secondary metabolites that confer tea quality and health benefits. Decoding novel genes responsible for tea characteristic components is an important basis for applied genetic improvement and metabolic engineering. Herein, a high-quality p rotein functi o nal n etwork for tea plant was predicted using cross-species protein functional associations transferring and...
