The basic elements displayed by applet Genes_Graph are genes, represented as rectangles, and their interactions, shown as arrows.
These arrows differ in shape and colour depending on interaction type. Red arrows connect a gene with the upstream genes of network, and blue arrows with downstream genes. Filled and hollow arrows reflect the mode of gene action - activation and repression correspondingly.

The following operations can be performed on the rectangles which represent genes:

VEB genes - very early blastula genes

AE - genes, expressed in the aboral ectoderm

OE - genes, expressed in the oral ectoderm

mesenchyme - genes, expressed in the mesenchyme

endoderm - genes, expressed in the endoderm
