Introduction to Cytoscape for the analysis, visualization, and integration of data with Rolando Garcia-Milian
Cytoscape is an open source platform for analysis and visualization of networked data, molecular interaction networks, and biological pathways. It also allows integrating these networks with annotations, gene expression profiles and other types of data. The workshop covers getting started in Cytoscape, creating and merging networks, visualization, installing add-on applications and more.

Mobile App Mondays are drop-in times to learn about the library’s extensive collection of free mobile applications, troubleshoot problems, and see a demonstration of the weekly featured application.
