Automatic graph visualization package

Project description

An automatic graph visualize package for `Cytoscape <>`__.

More Details

Automatic Graph Visualizer[AGVIZ] is one of the Cytoscape Projects. AGVIZ attaches some visualize information for the Cytoscape to the network structure information (CX format).

System Requirements

To use AGVIZ, you need the following:

  • Ubuntu (Recommend >=18.04) or macOS (Recommend >=10.14)

    • Windows is not supported

  • Python 3.x
