The Gene Ontology project is an effort to structure knowledge on biological products and processes by adding semantic information to them. This is done in a systematic way so that this additional information can be automatically processed. In this contribution a protein-protein interaction visualization algorithm is proposed, which combines protein interaction data with Gene Ontology semantic information. The information is integrated using a semantic distance measure defined in ontologies or taxonomies. Multidimensional scaling is applied to this measure and the output complements protein interaction data in building an interaction visualization map.
