ABSTRACT
We have developed a software platform called Osprey for visualization and manipulation of complex interaction networks. Osprey builds data-rich graphical representations that are color-coded for gene function and experimental interaction data. Mouse-over functions allow rapid elaboration and organization of network diagrams in a spoke model format. User-defined large-scale datasets can be readily combined with Osprey for comparison of different methods.

Figure 3: Layout options in Osprey. (a) Circular; (b) concentric circle with five rings; (c) dual ring with highly connected nodes on the inside; (d) dual ring with highly connected nodes outside; (e) spoked dual ring.

Mentions: As network complexity increases, graphical representations become cluttered and difficult to interpret. Osprey simplifies network layouts through user-implemented node relaxation, which disperses nodes and edges according to any one of a number of layout options. Any given node or set of nodes can be locked into place in order to anchor the network. Osprey also provides several default network layouts, including circular, concentric circles, spoke and dual ring (Figure 3). Finally, for comparison of large-scale datasets, Osprey can superimpose two or more datasets on top of each other in an additive manner. In conjunction with filter options, this feature allows interactions specific to any given approach to be identified.
