Dynamic network visualization in R

One way to create editable networks is to use RCytoscape [link1, link2]. Another way is to use tkplot() from within “igraph” package. tkplot produces editable networks which you can adjust manually and save via tkplot.getcoords(). The latter method is described in the tutorial whose screenshot you can see below. Click on the screenshot to jump to the tutorial.

Gephi: “Like Photoshop™ for graphs”

Finally, there is an alternative to Cytoscape. The community calls it “Photoshop(tm) for graphs.” Over US $2,000,000 spent on development. It’s free, has lots of plugins and a growing community.
