Osprey: a network visualization system

Genome Biol. 2003;4(3):R22. doi: 10.1186/gb-2003-4-3-r22. Epub 2003 Feb 27.


We have developed a software platform called Osprey for visualization and manipulation of complex interaction networks. Osprey builds data-rich graphical representations that are color-coded for gene function and experimental interaction data. Mouse-over functions allow rapid elaboration and organization of network diagrams in a spoke model format. User-defined large-scale datasets can be readily combined with Osprey for comparison of different methods.
