HIVE - Handy Integration and Visualisation of multimodal Experimental Data

HIVE combines network-focused Systems Biology approaches with spatio-temporal information. It extends the functionality of VANTED by adding the handling of volumes and images, together with a workspace approach, allowing one to integrate data of different biological data domains. HIVE is written in Java and Java3D and the main tasks are:

  • handling of omics data, networks, images and volumes,
  • integration of different data types using a graph-based workspace,
  • combining biological data in different ways and
  • manifold visualisations of combined data.
