Example 5: (05/05/13) A Super-Quick Introduction to BioFabric

Super Quick BioFabric

A quick animated demo of BioFabric of BioFabric written using D3.

Just the network displayed (no animation). Use this source if you just want to try displaying your own network, though it is just the code used in the above demo. Thus, it (probably) will not handle multiple components, singleton nodes, or duplicate links correctly!

Example 6: (05/29/13) Chemical Elements in Minerals (A Circos Vis Tables1 Example)

BioFabric Chemical Elements in Minerals Network Submodel
Cr-Mo-W Submodel

This network data set was used as part of a Circos table example. In this BioFabric example, I use a technique (hack?) to mimic the effect of fat and thin edges between nodes by creating a multi-graph. The number of edges between two elements is equal to the rounded base 2 log of the value in the adjacency matrix cell. If that number was less than or equal to 0, there is a single edge. Each edge is labled with its corresponding log value. Since the data matrix is not symmetrical, this is a directed graph. One change from the provided data is that the entries for two phantom elements "R" and "E" were discarded. They appear to be present due to a parsing error of the tag "REE" (rare earth element), which were apparently not correctly omitted.

The rows were explicitly laid out with a .noa attribute file such that the periodic table is traversed column-by-column starting from hydrogen.

Example 7: (12/08/13) Comparison of Glucose and Oleate Conditions in Yeast

BioFabric Network Visualization of Combined Glucose and Oleate Conditions
Combined Networks for Glucose and Oleate Conditions

This network is discussed at length in three blog posts:

It uses data from this paper:

Smith, J.J., Ramsey, S.A., Marelli, M., Marzolf, B., Hwang, D., Saleem, R.A., Rachubinski R.A., and Aitchison, J.D. Transcriptional responses to fatty acid are coordinated by combinatorial control, Molecular Systems Biology, 2007, 3:115
This particular example shows how the networks for two different experimental conditions can be combined and visually compared in one single network using BioFabric's link groups feature. Many other images are provided in the above-linked blog posts.

In addition to the .bif file, the node attribute (.noa) files used to rearrange the nodes to provide the different edge wedge arrangments are also provided below. Consult the blog posts for further details.

Example 8: (12/09/13) Brendan Griffen's Graph of Influential Thinkers

BioFabric Version of Brendan Griffen's Graph of Influential Thinkers

This network is now being discussed on the BioFabric blog:

You will find many more screen shots of parts of the network in that blog post.

Brendan Griffen has used the "influenced" and "influenced by" links on Wikipedia pages to create a "Graph of Influential Thinkers", which he discusses in a blog post. This is a BioFabric version of that network, laid out using the "similar connectivity" layout algorithm. The .bif file (in a compressed gzip archive file) for the network is provided below.
