List of visualization tools for network biology

Network analysis is any structured technique used to mathematically analyze a circuit (a “network” of interconnected components). The Network analysis provides the ability to quantify associations between individuals, which makes it possible to infer details about the network as a whole at the species and/or population level. Few tools published in BMC are listed here https://bmcbioinformatics.biomedcentral.com/articles/sections/networks-analysis.
