Motivation Reactome is a free, open‐source, open‐data, curated and peer‐reviewed knowledge base of biomolecular pathways. Pathways are arranged in a hierarchical structure that largely corresponds to the GO biological process hierarchy, allowing the user to navigate from high level concepts like immune system to detailed pathway diagrams showing biomolecular events like membrane transport or phosphorylation. Here, we present new developments in the Reactome visualization system that facilitate…

The Reactome Pathway Knowledgebase
TLDR
To support the continued brisk growth in the size and complexity of Reactome, this work has implemented a graph database, improved performance of data analysis tools, and designed new data structures and strategies to boost diagram viewer performance.
SBGNview: towards data analysis, integration and visualization on all pathways
TLDR
By adopting the standard SBGN format, SBGNview greatly extend the coverage of pathway-based analysis and data visualization to essentially all major pathway databases beyond KEGG, including 5200 reference pathways and over 3000 species.
Data-dependent visualization of biological networks in the web-browser with NDExEdit
TLDR
NDExEdit is a web-based application where simple changes can be made to biological networks within the browser, and which does not require installation, and is designed to conform to the Cytoscape Exchange (CX) format as a data model, which is used for the data transmission by both tools.
Graph Models for Biological Pathway Visualization: State of the Art and Future Challenges
TLDR
This paper revisits a heterogeneous definition of biological networks and aims to provide an overview to see the gaps between data modeling and visual representation, and provides guidelines and challenges of using multilayer networks as a unified data structure for the biological pathway visualization.
SBGNview: Data Analysis, Integration and Visualization on All Pathways
TLDR
By adopting the standard SBGN format, SBGNview greatly extend the coverage of pathway based analysis and data visualization to essentially all major pathway databases beyond KEGG, including 5200 reference pathways and over 3000 species.
Metabopolis: scalable network layout for biological pathway diagrams in urban map style
TLDR
A new approach for computing biological pathway maps that untangles visual clutter by decomposing large networks into semantic sub-networks and bundling long edges to create space for presenting relationships systematically.
CausalTab: PSI-MITAB 2.8 updated format for signaling data representation and dissemination
TLDR
A common standard for the representation and dissemination of signaling information: the PSI Causal Interaction tabular format (CausalTAB) which is an extension of the existing PSI-MI tab-delimited format, now designated MITAB2.8.
Interleukins and their signaling pathways in the Reactome biological pathway database
CausalTAB: the PSI-MITAB 2.8 updated format for signalling data representation and dissemination
TLDR
A common standard for the representation and dissemination of signalling information is presented: the PSI Causal Interaction tabular format (CausalTAB) which is an extension of the existing PSI-MI tab-delimited format, now designatedPSI-MITAB 2.8.
A Multi-Scale Visual Analytics Approach for Exploring Biomedical Knowledge
TLDR
The generality of the approach - insofar as it requires only knowledge graphs linked to documents - means it can support a range of therapeutic use cases across different domains, from disease propagation to drug discovery.
