Other tools

Are you a former user of Pajek that use Cytoscape now? Need to convert Pajek files to Cytoscape (including conversion of Pajek cluster files to Cytoscape node attributes)? See: pyNetConv


I have worked with many languages before, but Java is something new to me. I decided to learn it because I wanted to write plugins for Cytoscape. So I have run into some problems in the beginning, like: "how to start?" :-) So I decided to write some documents about this experience. I'll put this documents here at the wiki and in the csresources page. Up to now, I wrote only one. It can be found here:
