The Cytoscape platform for network analysis and visualization

Abstract : Cytoscape is an open source software platform that supports the visualization and analysis of molecular profiling data in the context of functional interaction networks. It is developed by several research groups that are actively involved in the development of technologies around the generation and integrative analysis of molecular profiling data in the context of biological and biomedical research. Here, we outline the rationale behind the use of functional interaction networks, introduce the Cytoscape platform, and present an example in which data analysis and visualization using Cytoscape has led to a discovery of previously unknown disease biology.
