technical report Custom visualization of biological structures: an application to BlenX complexes


In this paper we present an extensible framework that aims at making the process of understanding the results obtained by a formal language model easier, by using visualization techniques. The final goal is to have a powerful way of expressing biological models thanks to formal languages techniques united to the familiarity and easiness of pictures, cartoons and graphical representations to interpret them. The framework is general, and can be applied to several problems in which visualization of data in the form of a graph is needed. It is also modular, so that parts of it can be taken and used for different purposes. We present a practical application of this framework, namely the visualization of BlenX complexes produced as a result of the static analysis or of the dynamic simulation of BlenX models.
