From the perspective of graph drawing, a protein interaction network is challenging because it is a complicated, nonplanar graph with a large number of edge crossings and because it is a disconnected graph consisting of many connected components with nodes of a wide range of degrees. INTERVIEWER is a system for drawing and exploring protein-protein interaction networks in three-dimensional space. Unique features of INTERVIEWER include: (1) it is much faster than other recent implementations of drawing algorithms; (2) it can be used not only for drawing protein interaction networks but also for simplifying them into different types of networks; and (3) it provides an integrated framework for querying protein interaction databases and directly visualizing the query results.
