PathwayMapper: A New Web Editor for Cancer Pathways

Sign in to follow this  




Although there are many visualization tools available, that allow researchers to explore and analyze their cancer datasets, not many of them provide simplified diagrams. To answer the need for simplification, researchers from Bilkent University, Cornell University, and Oregon Health and Science University have a developed a new online tool. Named PathwayMapper, the web editor allows researchers to create more clear pathways and diagrams, similar to those found in The Cancer Genome Atlas.

The online tool can be accessed via the PathwayMapper website (www.pathwaymapper.org) or can be downloaded from the PathwayMapper's Github Page. 

Our Interaction with PathwayMapper

Our brief interaction with the online web version of PathwayMapper showed us just how easy it was to develop sophisticated pathways while keeping things easy to follow and understand. Users can quickly select different node palettes such as the particular gene, complex, family, etc. Another category allows you to create the various interactions that are occurring between the complexes. Additionally, the software allows you to create customizations to the layout, that gives you the most control over the entire design of the pathway.
