An open-source software platform used for visualization and analysis of molecular interaction and network data
Tutorial and training materials by OpenHelix
|Learn to use Cytoscape, an open-source software platform used for visualization and analysis of molecular interaction and network data. Cytoscape uses a graphical user interface with floatable panels to easily manage your network data. Graphical data displays and text attributes provide detailed information about interactions of interest. Customizable features enable extensive visualization and manipulation opportunities. This platform also offers plugin capability to increase functionality, and has an active user community developing and maintaining the software.|
Note: This tutorial corresponds to Cytoscape 2.x versions. We are monitoring the releases of the 3.x software and will provide updates in the future.
- how to navigate and use the graphical user interface
- to import network data from different sources
- how to create a network layout and import attributes for your network
- how to find and load plugins to add functionality to your network analysis
