I'm not sure if you're familiar with BioLayout or not, but it's a program developed in the research institute I work in. You can use it to visualise microarray data etc in a really cool way. A new version has just been released, please read on for more info! x Clare
Installers are available from our Download page (http://www.biolayout.org/download/).
The software includes a range of new features, the main ones of which are listed below:
- Integration of the Fast Multipole Multilevel Method (FMMM) graph layout algorithm. This is a force-directed layout algorithm that allows graph layout to be computed with a small number of iterations. In practise, this produces better laid out graphs, with more sparsely arranged nodes. The algorithm is particularly useful for the visualisation of large datasets that BioLayout excels in.
- All plots now use JFreeChart enabling some customisation of plots including ability to display the mean, standard deviation, standard error or interquartile range (IQR)
- Data series can now be plotted as lines or histogram style
- Options to filter by input value or coefficient of variation
- Support for import of Graph Modelling Language (GML) files. GML is a popular standard file format for the exchange of graphs and is supported by a wide range of graph drawing and network visualisation software packages.
