FASPAD: A Tool for the Detection of Linear Signaling Pathways in Protein Interaction Networks
From this page you can download a tool to detect signaling pathway candidates in protein interaction networks as described in
It can be also used to find minimum-weight simple paths of a user-specified length in arbitrary networks.
The tool is based on an implementation of the algorithms described in the paper
