||WebInterViewer is a web-based version of InterViewer.
WebInterViewer efficiently produces a molecular interaction network of
good quality without computing force between every pair of nodes.
||WebInterViewer improves on InterViewer in many ways:
while InterViewer produces a drawing by computing force
between every pair of nodes in each iteration of the
optimization process, WebInterViewer produces a more pleasant
drawing without computing force between every pair of nodes,
WebInterViewer provides several abstraction operations to reduce complex networks into simpler ones,
multiple molecular interaction networks can be compared for
common moleculars and their interactions shared by all or part
of the networks, and
WebInterViewer is more convenient to use since it is a
web-based application program.
There are three implementations of WebInterViewer:
version, OCX version, and Java version. The OCX versions are
executable within a web browser on any PC with Windows system. The
Java version (called InterViewer_Java) is executable within a web
browser on any system, but slower than the OCX versions.
InterViewer_Java is executed by Java Web Start, which ensures
latest version of WebInterViewer as well as the correct
version of the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) be deployed depending
on a userí»s system.
WebInterViewer takes as input interaction data in several
- Data from Microsoft Access database.
- Data on
molecular, domain, and function in XML format.
- GML: Graph
Modelling Language format.
- pnm: a pair of interacting molecular
names, separated by space or tab, in each line.
- pid: a pair of
interacting molecular indices, separated by tab, in each line.
pid_label: a pair of molecular index and its name, separated by tab,
in each line.
- pid_pos: an ordered list of molecular index and
its position (x, y, and z coordinates), separated by tab, in each
- Data in xin format from DIP
Data files in
pid_label or pid_pos format are automatically read if they already
exist when the user opens a file in pid format. Please see the
examples and download sections for the format of the above input
