In the study of biological networks, graph visualisations are often used. Most of these visualisations are 2D, and not much work has been done on doing 3D visualisations of these networks, nor on using virtual environments for these visualisations. In this thesis we will describe a visualisation technique for gene regulatory networks. The implementation of this will use SARAgene, an application written by SARA and promoted as a framework for biological visualisation applications in virtual environments. This application is relatively new, so we will also make some remarks about its fitness to serve as such a framework. Finally, we propose a new type of multiple selection tool for use in virtual environments. We will show the results from an evaluation and determine the properties that result in the best performance. There are a number of results in this thesis. First is an extension of the SARAgene application that visualises gene regulatory networks. Also, there is a working version of the multiple selection tool that can be used in any component of SARAgene. Finally, some remarks are made about SARAgene's fitness as a framework.
