Flexible User-Guided Network Layout for Biomedical Applications

    Project: Research

    Project Details

    Project Description

    Systems biologists often work with complex network diagrams, working to understand the interacting
    network of genes, proteins and biochemical processes occurring in organisms.
    Good layout is vital to their effective use, but is difficult for authors to achieve manually. This project will
    develop powerful new layout algorithms and a new model for integrating automatic layout into interactive
    network visualisation tools for biology. The main novelty is that the model supports a collaborative approach
    in which the author uses placement constraints to control and guide the automatic layout. This new
    interaction model promises to dramatically improve information visualization software for authoring and
    browsing biological and other networks.
