The BioGateway Cytoscape Plugin - A graphical interface to BioGateway within Cytoscape
MetadataShow full item record
The BioGateway Knowledge Base, a semantic Systems Biology knowledge resource built using Semantic Web technologies, combines large datasets into an integrated repository for querying and information retrieval. It relies on a SPARQL-based web interface for interacting and retrieving data, but this remains challenging to use for biologists. This thesis presents the design, functionality and use cases of a tool developed by the author, that allows a more user-friendly way of interacting with BioGateway by enabling it to be queried from within the popular open-source network visualisation tool Cytoscape. By giving users access to the resources of BioGateway from within Cytoscape, this should make the knowledge stored in BioGateway more easily available to end-users.
