Cytoscape automation workshop by Dr. Alexander Pico
Cytoscape is one of the most popular desktop applications for network analysis and visualization. Dr. Pico has been a contributing member to Cytoscape since 2006 and has led numerous Cytoscape and Network Biology workshops and mentoring programs over the past 10 years.
Cytoscape is an open source software platform for visualizing molecular interaction networks and biological pathways and integrating these networks with annotations, gene expression profiles and other state data. Although Cytoscape was originally designed for biological research, now it is a general platform for complex network analysis and visualization.
