This is a tutorial how to merge multiple networks from multiple data sources by Advanced Network Merge plugin.



You need to install following plugins to try this tutorial.



Scinario 1: Merge existing network file and network imported from web service

This is the most common usecase for this plugin. Supporse users have their own data sets (networks) and want to integrate them with other network data sets available from public databases. This plugin can easily handle this problem.

In this example, we are going to use human network data sets (rual.sif) and expand this network from public databases.

Data Source


  1. Start Cytoscape. Assume you have already installed all required plugins.
  2. Import user network. In this example, use RUAL.sif in the example. Import > Network and select URL. From the plull-down menu, select Rual et al. (rual.sif) dataset. Then press Import

  3. Select Import > Network from Web Services...

  4. For Data Source, select IntAct Web Service Client

  5. Type TP53 AND human in the Query field, then press Search

  6. When you asked to enter network name, type TP53 from IntAct

  7. Select Import > Network from Web Services...

  8. For Data Source, select NCBI Entrez Eutilities Web Service Client

  9. Type TP53 AND human then press search.

  10. Name the network (TP53 from Entrez)

  11. Apply layouts for each networks
  12. Select View > Arrange Network Windows > Tiled. At this point, your workspace looks like the following:
