The CELLmicrocosmos 1 CellExplorer (with the PathwayIntegration) is a visualization tool which enables to integrate biological networks into a virtual 3D cell environment.

This Java software was used for several application cases, for bio illustration and exploration, visual analysis of molecular networks, cytological education, and building virtual environments for large CAVE/VR environments. It connects to a number of external databases which contain protein and gene localization data.
