Cytoscape is an open-source software platform for visualizing networks. While originally developed to visualize molecular interaction and biological pathways, Cytoscape is readily applicable to social science and humanities research: "now it is a general platform for complex network analysis and visualization". The core Cityscape application "provides a basic set of features for data integration, analysis, and visualization". For more specialized research, Cytoscape features a wide variety of add-on applications that expand the capability of the program to answer specific research questions. Cytoscape actively forges an online community through social media and training events in order to connect users and provide support for their project's use of Cytoscape.
