Re-centered on AT4G18170 and AT2G46400 with Num Hops set to two. NaviClusterCS's re-centering function allows users to intuitively grasp what types of genes exist around the genes of interest in large networks. In this screenshot, a user selects AT4G18170 and AT2G46400, sets Num Hops to two, and clicks Run. Then, NaviClusterCS immediately collects all of the genes that are within two hops from these two genes and clusters them to a visually interpretable level. The user can immediately see clusters related to response to chitin, response to salicylic acid, and response to abscisic acid stimulus, around the genes of interest, implying that AT4G18170 and AT2G46400 are involved in defense response mechanisms.
