Visualization of SBGN Process Description Maps

Recently we have started working on the visualization of SBGN process description maps. SBGN stands for Systems Biology Graphical Notation and is an effort to provide a standardized graphical notation for molecular and system-biology applications that describe biological pathways/networks. Pathways are modeled as abstract graphs and, thus, we can apply our yFiles diagramming library for their visualization. Visualization facilitates the communication of complex information and, thus, is especially useful for such applications with their huge amount of structured data.

SVG, Canvas, WebGL? Visualization options for the web

Ever since we released our commercial graph drawing library for HTML5 and JavaScript/Typescript, we have been working hard to get the best possible performance that is available on the HTML5 platform: Our initial implementation six years ago only supported SVG, because we found it to be the most flexible, most widely available and easy to work with API for us and our customers, who are also developers. At that time (when Internet Explorer 9 was still in wide use), it already was the best performing technology, at least if you wanted to render high-quality, non-trivial, large-scale graphics.
