Cytoscape

What is Cytoscape?

Cytoscape is a program used for the visualization of various networks. While it is most often associated with the generation of graphic representations of molecular and bioinformatic network data, it is in fact versatile enough to be used for social network representations, complex circuits, and the like.

Part of its popularity in bioinformatics may well derive from its genesis. The program was developed, after all, at Seattle’s Institute of Systems Biology. The fist fields in which it gained popularity, as a result, were related to the institute’s discipline. As such, many of its plug-ins are also related to bioinformatic projects—plug-ins for the program have been largely user-created, after all. However, there is a growing pool of users as well as plug-ins that come from other fields.

There are myriad visual style options available for users creating networks on the program. Furthermore, superpositions of data such as expression ratios belong to the features advanced users will appreciate. Two-dimensional layout networks are supported, and users can leverage the power of a number of layout algorithms. Network browsing mode supports zooming in and out as well as panning too.
