Overview

VANTED stands for Visualization and Analysis of Networks containing Experimental Data.

This system makes it possible to load and edit graphs, which may represent biological pathways or functional hierarchies. It is possible to map experimental datasets onto the graph elements and visualize time series data or data of different genotypes or environmental conditions in the context of a the underlying biological processes. Built-in statistic functions allow a fast evaluation of the data (e.g. t-Test or correlation analysis). A demo session (video and screenshot list) is available from the Tutorials section, which additionally contains example pathways and measurement datasets.

Kegg issues

The availability of KEGG services may be restricted at the moment depending on your academic subscription license as announced in:
http://www.bioinformatics.jp/en/keggftp.html
http://www.kegg.jp/kegg/docs/plea.html
At the moment the KEGG FTP access is likely not to work, but it is still possible to manually download some files (such as KGML files) from the KEGG homepage and import them into VANTED:
  • Go to http://www.genome.jp/kegg/pathway.html
  • Select the desired pathway from the list (scroll down to view the complete list)
  • Choose your model species or the reference pathway and press "Download KGML" in the top menu and save the pathway
  • Open the pathway in VANTED.
Please do not send further bug reports regarding this issue. We will keep you informed on further developments.
