Abstract: Network motifs have been suggested as a means to understand Systems biological functions. Based on several arguments from computer science, logic, mathematics, chemistry and non-linear dynamics, we explain the difficulties encountered in capturing the evolving dynamical functions carried out by the genetic regulatory networks (GRN), based on the assembly of motifs.

Keywords: adjacency matrices; assortative networks; complex networks; disassortative networks; eigenvalues; Lyapunov exponents; graph motifs; positive entropy; system biology; genetic regulatory networks.
