Biological networks can be large and complex, often consisting of different sub-networks or parts. Separation of networks into parts, network partitioning and layouts of overview and sub-graphs are of importance for understandable visualisations of those networks. This article presents NetPartVis to visualise non-overlapping clusters or partitions of graphs in the Vanted framework based on a method for laying out overview graph and several sub-graphs (partitions) in a coordinated, mental-map preserving way.
