:: DESCRIPTION

FASPAD (Fast Signaling Pathway Detection) is a tool for the detection of linear signaling pathways in protein interaction networks.Using recent algorithmic insights, it can solve the underlying NP-hard problem quite fast: for protein networks of typical size (several thousand nodes), pathway candidates of length up to 13 proteins can be found within seconds and with a 99.9% probability of optimality. FASPAD graphically displays all candidates that are found; for evaluation and comparison purposes, an overlay of several candidates and the surrounding network context can also be shown.
