Grapher 9 is a 2D and 3D graphing program. Users can convert their data into any of fifty-four fully customizable graph types
At first glance, a diagram of the complex network of genes that regulate cellular metabolism might seem hopelessly complex, and efforts to control such a system futile. However, a researcher has come up with a new computational model that can analyze any type of complex network and reveal the critical points that can be used to control the entire system
