CytoSevis is a Cytoscape plugin that is able to visualize protein interaction networks in a semantic similarity space. Based on an intuitive interface, it is able to load a network from Cytoscape, to load the semantic similarities provided as a separate file, and to visualize resulting coloured network into Cytoscape.
The main contributions of the proposed plugin are the following:
* we exploit semantic similarity analysis, that is currently one of the main developing research area in protein interaction networks;
* CytoSevis provides a graphical user interface and enables the visualisation of networks in such a space;
* we provide a cross-platform Java-based CytoSevisdistribution running on Windows/Linux/MacOS;
* we provide semantic similarity data on a separate web site.
