How to choose the right network building algorithm to test and expand your hypothesis. One aspect of systems biology is to integrate complex interactions of biological systems. GeneGo provides a highly annotated and dense interaction database with over ten different network building algorithms. Here we demonstrate the strength of these tools in the ability to visualize signaling interaction networks and expand on your hypotheses outside of the realm of your core research areas. This tutorial describes each network building algorithm and modeling workflows including building with canonical pathway interactions, with examples of when to use each. In this session we also highlight how to optimize the visualization of your interactions of interest on a network we will build. We will show tools such as how to add/ hide/show objects and how to manipulate visualizations of pathways using post-filters such as disease, tissue, orthologs or gene ontology processes.
