Open Graph Drawing Framework (OGDF)

The Open Graph Drawing Framework (OGDF) is an open source software project that provides a library of datastructures and graph layout algorithms. OGDF is the successor of AGD, the library of algorithms for graph drawing.

Scaffold Hunter is a tool for the interactive exploration of chemical space. It facilitates navigation by graphical visualization of structural relationships and provides methods for the analysis of large data sets, e.g., to correlate chemical structure and biochemical activity. Scaffold Hunter is implemented in Java and freely available under the GPL.

RINalyzer allows to analyze and visualize protein residue interaction networks (RINs). A RIN is constructed from the three-dimensional structure of a protein as stored in PDB files from the Protein Data Bank. RINalyzer allows simultaneous, interactive 2D visualization and exploration of a RIN in Cytoscape, together with the corresponding molecular 3D structure visualized in UCSF Chimera. RINalyzer is available as a Java plugin for Cytoscape, a free software platform for the analysis and visualization of molecular interaction networks.
