The main difference between the visualization of biochemical pathways and the visualization of other data arising in biochemistry is that the visualization should rather exhibit a topological structure than numerical data. The yWays library provides a rich set of tools for the visualization of biochemical pathways. The main features of yWays are:

This manual contains a description of all data structures, algorithms and GUI Elements provided by the yWays library.

This manual is structured as follows: First the architecture of yWays is discussed with its main components: the core and the subsystems. In the following chapters these components are described in detail.
