Several mathematical methods support the analysis of network structured data and help to uncover important properties of networks. The ranking of network elements (vertices and edges) using centralities is such a method and we have developed CentiBiN (CENTralities In BIological Networks) to assist the centrality based analysis of networks. CentiBiN is a tool for the computation and comparison of different network centralities. It is used in our ongoing work on evaluating centrality measures for specific biological networks.
