KnetMaps: a BioJS component to visualize biological knowledge networks

Ajit Singh, Christopher J. Rawlings, Keywan Hassani-Pak
Abstract: KnetMaps is a BioJS component for the interactive visualization of biological knowledge networks. It is well suited for applications that need to visualise complementary, connected and content-rich data in a single view in order to help users to traverse pathways linking entities of interest, for example to go from genotype to phenotype. KnetMaps loads data in JSON format, visualizes the structure and content of knowledge networks using lightweight JavaScript libraries, and supports interactive touch gestures. KnetMaps uses effective visualization techniques to prevent information overload and to allow researchers to progressively build their knowledge.
