MetDisease Plugin for Cytoscape

MetDisease is an app for Cytoscape, the bioinformatics network visualization tool. The app is used to annotate a metabolic network with MeSH disease terms, explore related diseases within a network, and link to PubMed references corresponding to any network node and selection of MeSH terms. MeSH terms are controlled vocabulary terms used by the National Library of Medicine to describe the content of the articles indexed in PubMed.
