Summary: NAViGaTOR is a powerful graphing application for the 2D and 3D visualization of biological networks. NAViGaTOR includes a rich suite of visual mark-up tools for manual and automated annotation, fast and scalable layout algorithms and OpenGL hardware acceleration to facilitate the visualization of large graphs. Publication-quality images can be rendered through SVG graphics export. NAViGaTOR supports community-developed data formats (PSI-XML, BioPax and GML), is platform-independent and is extensible through a plug-in architecture.

Availability: NAViGaTOR is freely available to the research community from Installers and documentation are provided for 32- and 64-bit Windows, Mac, Linux and Unix.


Supplementary information: Supplementary data are available at Bioinformatics online.
