Abstract

Summary:

Networks have become ubiquitous in systems biology. Visualization is a crucial component in their analysis. However, collaborations within research teams in network biology are hampered by software systems that are either specific to a computational algorithm, create visualizations that are not biologically meaningful, or have limited features for sharing networks and visualizations. We present GraphSpace, a web-based platform that fosters team science by allowing collaborating research groups to easily store, interact with, layout and share networks.

Availability and implementation:

Anyone can upload and share networks at http://graphspace.org. In addition, the GraphSpace code is available at http://github.com/Murali-group/graphspace if a user wants to run his or her own server.
