Progress in WP12 Hypergraphs with applications in bioinformatics

A plane bus graph is a crossing free embedded bipartite graph in which vertices of one partition will be represented as horizontal or vertical segments. These segments are associated with buses, while this drawing style (bus realization) resembles VLSI design. We have shown together with Stefan Felsner (TU Berlin) that planar bus graphs can be tested in polynomial time, whether they admit a crossing free bus realization.

We have written three papers about a new layout for graphs called partial edge drawing.
