Visualization of Biochemical Pathways

In this project we develop tools for the visualization of biochemical pathways.
This includes:
  • An Application to display and render metabolic pathways.
  • Server side visualization plugins for the visualization of database queries.
  • Specialized automatic graph layout and labeling algorithms for metabolic pathways.
  • Visual comparison of pathways.
All software is written in JAVA 2, and runs therefore on a wide variety of platforms. The software is not dependend on a special database, especially you can integrate the tools into your own application over a simple API.

Pathway Browser

Pathway Browser is an application for the visualization of Metabolic Pathways.
