PyMood is a plug-and-play desktop application for visualizing genomic data. It is used to analyze and display relations between complete genomes, genomic fragments, proteins, ESTs, full-length cDNAs, and virtually any sets of sequences. The program is also used to visualize and analyze expression data.

The visualization principle in PyMood is coloring and positioning objects (genes, proteins, etc.) in space according to their data values. The 3D output in PyMood can be rotated, zoomed in and out, shifted, and queried. The produced outputs allow visual presentation of patterns in the database, so the user can form the queries based on observed patterns. The patterns and groups of genes can be easily retrieved using PyMood selection widgets. The program description and example projects are available at:
