We'd like to announce an update to our rule-based pathways visualization tool which allows you to follow signaling pathways as they propagate through the cellular networks.
Unlike other tools, we've built VisiPaths to be fully interactive so that the user can alter any node property and visualize the changes it causes to signaling outcomes. The user can also set any node action in a time-like fashion, using complex constructs such as adding a delay function for a specific connection.
And we've worked hard to build a complex and powerful toolset that allows you to separately configure and set early signaling events (such as protein phosphorylation/acetylation, etc) and late (transcription) signaling events . And once you configure a pathway, the VisiPaths app will do the hard work of automatically visualizing its oscillations.
To sum up, the main benefits of VisiPaths are three fold:
- VisiPaths can map a complex array of connections (interactions) that account for a great number of interacting scenarios
- VisiPaths supports nodes with unknown kinetic characteristics (inferred indirectly from cell and animal studies).
- VisiPaths provides a powerful interactive graphical platform to assemble pathway maps in an intuitive way. And to help users get started, VisiPaths includes several pre-assembled pathways which could be further altered by the user.
We invite you to check out the app at VisiPaths.com
