[…] in different compartments. the objective was to showcase how cellmap can simplify ppi hairballs. we visualize the same ppi network using cellmap ( ) and cytoscape in the form of the cytoscape.js version used by hippie ( ) and the cytoscape desktop version ( )., none of the three viewers solves the ppi hairball problem completely. without zooming in, the information density […]

[…] using a combination of hypertext markup language (html), cascading style sheets (css), and javascript and has been tested in all major browsers. interactive network visualizations are rendered using cytoscape.js (franz et al. )., to determine if the observed gene-based set overlaps are defined by the sizes of the respective datasets, they were compared to a background distribution.

[…] some known functional association to the drug (based on stitch/string database)., to allow an interactive presentation of the evidence networks, a web-portal was created using the javascript library cytoscape.js [] and built into the main eddy-ctrp web-portal ( these evidence networks can be accessed at two places in the portal. first, […]

[…] that deals with substructures computation has been developed in java, and the functional enrichment procedure has implemented using the r statistical environment []. the web application also employs cytoscape.js [] for displaying subpathways. furthermore, to minimize user waiting time, all the computations are cached to be reused; therefore no user private data are stored. in , we report […]
