This function allows reducing the dimensionality of a network, by removing nodes that do not meet the established distance and/or node betweenness criteria.

1 | ```
MS_topologyFilter(network_table, mode = "all", type, target_node, distance_th, bw_th)
``` |

`network_table` |
three-column matrix where each row represents and edge between two nodes. See function "MS_keggNetwork( )". |

`mode` |
character constant indicating whether a directed ("out") or undirected ("all") network will be considered. |

`type` |
character constant used to establish the criteria for filtering the network. "bw" indicates that edges (i.e. rows of the network_table) containing at least one node with betweenness below bw_th will be neglected. "distance" indicates edges containing at least one node with shortest path length to the target_node above distance_th will be neglected. "all" indicates that edges containing at least one node with either betweenness below bw_th or distance above distance_th, will be neglected. |

`target_node` |
character vector containing the ID of the node to which the distances will be calculated. |

`distance_th` |
numeric value corresponding to the distance threshold. Nodes with shortest path length to the target_node above this threshold will be removed from the network-table. |

`bw_th` |
numeric value corresponding to the normalized-betweenness threshold. Nodes with betweenness below this threshold will be removed from the network-table. See also "MS_nodeBW( )". |

A three-column matrix where each row represents an edge between two nodes.

# Note below that network_filtered1 has one edge more than network_filtered2. This is
# because "cpd:C00031" has betweenness = 0, and therefore it is removed in network_filtered2:
setdiff(as.vector(network_filtered1[, 1:2]),as.vector(network_filtered2[, 1:2]))
