Dash Cytoscape

Released on February 5th, 2019**

Dash Cytoscape is a graph visualization component for creating easily
customizable, high-performance, interactive, and web-based networks. It
extends and renders Cytoscape.js, and
offers deep integration with Dash layouts and callbacks, enabling the
creation of powerful networks in conjunction with the rich collection of
Dash components, as well as established computational biology and network
science libraries such as Biopython and networkX.

    Dash Cytoscape graphs are interactive! Scroll to zoom and drag on
    the canvas to move the entire graph around. You can move nodes by
    dragging it, or by clicking, holding, and moving your mouse
    to the desired location (and click again to release).

    This also work in mobile! Tap-and-hold on a node to move it, or on
    the canvas to move the entire graph. Pinch your fingers outwards to
    zoom in, or pinch them together to zoom out.
