The purpose of this portal is to distribute tutorial materials for Cytoscape 3 and Cytoscape Apps.
Cytoscape is an open source bioinformatics software platform for visualizing molecular interaction networks and integrating these interactions with gene expression profiles and other state data. Many apps are available for network and molecular profiling analyses, new layouts, additional file format support, scripting, and connection with databases.
These tutorials are for developers either a) porting 2.x plugins to 3.x apps, or b) writing a new 3.x app from scratch. We hope they give developers an easy way to get started, with information up to date and all in one place. We assume that app developers have a working knowledge of Java programming, ant, Maven, Git, and optionally Eclipse.
