3DScape is the first plug-in which enables three-dimensional network visualization in Cytoscape. 3DScape features include accessing graph appearance, layout algorithm, and animation effects on a series of expression data.
- Convert Cytoscape network view to a 3D, retaining the color, size, and shape of nodes.
- Three-dimensional layout using Fruchterman-Reingold (Fruchterman et al., 1991), Fast Multipole Multilevel Method (FM3) (Hachul et al., 2004), and Span Tree algorithms.
- Network edges can be rendered in gradient heat map colors, with glowing effect.
- Animation loops from time points of a series of expression data.
It is showing a fantastic rotating network.
