The network perspective on biology aims to bring meaningful context to high-throughput data for exploratory analysis, interpretation and hypothesis generation. As a free and open source tool, Cytoscape has become the most popular network visualization and analysis tools in the biological sciences. It is now cited in over 400 publications per year and downloaded over 7,000 times per month. This class will provide a general introduction to network biology studies and Cytoscape concepts, including a hands-on session for universal data import and demonstration of a few of the over 100 freely available apps contributed by the Cytoscape developer community.
By the end of this tutorial, you should be able to:
- Import any tabular data in Cytoscape
- Integrate your data with public sources of networks, pathways and other datasets
- Master layout and data visualization
