Cytoscape is the most popular software for analyzing and visualizing molecular networks and biological pathways. Cytoscape has many powerful features for integrating these networks with annotations, gene expression profiles and other state data.

At this beginner’s clinic, the Cytoscape development team will provide hands-on instruction and guidance on using Cytoscape. Attendees will be able to pose questions directly to Cytoscape tutors and developers. We will start with Cytoscape installation and work our way through the online tutorials available at

This clinic is open to anyone interested in hearing the presentation, working through the tutorials and posing their own Cytoscape-related questions.

Due to the hands-on format of this clinic attendance is limited to 12 people and registration required.
