BCFinder is a free open-source software for detecing communities in bipartite networks. The application is developed in Java which makes it platform independent. The biclique community detecion method has the advantages of the k-clique method, but augments it with respect to one aspect: the algorithm utilizes bipartite network information in order to investigate aspects of community structure in sparse regions, where the k-clique algorithm is unable to detect communities.

BCFinder features:

  • Optional scaling of nodes proportional to the number of bicliques the node participates in
  • Network of communities
  • Save community as EPS
  • Export communities to text files
  • Search for nodes and communities
  • Rearrange graph layout with "selection" mouse mode
  • List of node A types and node B types for each community
