N-Browse is a graphical network browser for the visualization and navigation of heterogeneous molecular interaction data. N-Browse runs as a Java applet in a Web browser, providing highly dynamic and interactive on-demand access to network data available from a remote server. The N-Browse interface is easy to use and accommodates multiple types of functional linkages with associated information, allowing the exploration of many layers of functional information simultaneously. Although created for applications in biology, N-Browse uses a generic database schema that can be adapted to network representations in any knowledge domain. The N-Browse client-server package is freely available for distribution, providing a convenient way for data producers and providers to distribute and offer interactive visualization of network-based data.
