A taxonomy of visualization tasks for the analysis of biological pathway data

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 5333192
PMID: 28251869
DOI: 10.1186/s12859-016-1443-5

[…] lization techniques and applications. Here we look at tools that exemplify typical visualization strategies, including: ChiBe [], Entourage [], Reactome Pathway Browser [], VisAnt [], MetaViz [], and VitaPad [].Node-link diagrams are the nearly-universal choice of visual representation used in existing applications (exceptions to this rule include BioFabric []). Cytoscape [] is a popular graph vis […]


Extended LineSets: a visualization technique for the interactive inspection of biological pathways

BMC Proc
PMCID: 4547339
PMID: 26361500
DOI: 10.1186/1753-6561-9-S6-S4

[…] majority of these pathway visualization tools use conventional graph representations, many of them decorate the node-link diagrams with experimental data or other additional information. For example, VitaPad allows the user to incorporate microarray data into pathways, Entourage enables the integration of experimental data, and VisAnt permits the user to create and view annotations of nodes within […]


State of the Art in Silico Tools for the Study of Signaling Pathways in Cancer

Int J Mol Sci
PMCID: 3397482
PMID: 22837650
DOI: 10.3390/ijms13066561

[…] cessor [], PathMAPA [], Cytoscape [], and PathwayMine [] use Fisher’s exact test. MetaCore uses a hypergeometric model, while ArrayXPath [] offers both Fisher’s exact test and a false discovery rate. VitaPad [] and Pathway Studio [] focus on visualization approaches alone and do not offer any detailed analyses. Finally, the impact analysis method, which is implemented as a Web-based tool, and Path […]
