A Cytoscape plugin for searching biological networks. Locating subgraphs matching a specific topology is useful to find higherorder connectivity motifs of networks that may have functional relevance in the modeled biological system. NetMatch supports subgraph matching queries against a target network.


NEtmatch has been developed with other authors as a research project at University of Catania.

NetMatch is supported by StudioPigola on all editions of Windows 10.
