3rd Workshop Information Visualization with Omix
November 7-8, Jülich
The third Workshop Information Visualization with Omix takes place on November 7 and 8 at
Forschungszentrum Jülich, IBG-1. Omix® is a user-friendly and highly customizable editor for
metabolic network diagrams, equipped with extensive data visualization features. Main fields
of application are the interactive mapping of multi-omics data in the direct context of network drawings,
in particular in the fields of transcriptomics, metabolomics and fluxomics.
Omix is already in use by more than 150 groups worldwide.
An outstanding feature of Omix is OVL, an object-oriented scripting engine that allows programming of network diagrams. For example, OVL enables the user to define interaction with the network diagram and dynamic modification of the attributes of all graphical elements in a drawing according to available data from experiment and simulation. This way, time-dependent numerical data is easily animated in the context of network diagrams.
A number of plug-ins exist that extend Omix by interfaces to important data exchange
formats like Excel and SBML, to the KEGG data bases and to simulators like MATLAB, Dymola
and, especially, to 13CFLUX2. Omix is a versatile multi-purpose graphical modeling tool
and evolved to a rich visual front- and backend for the 13C Metabolic Flux Analysis.
