Any suggestions for approaches (or modules) for using Mathematica to draw graph displays of complicated graphs with a few subsets of (identified) nodes that are part of subgraphs, which tend to have more relationships with each other than the general groups, and can be identified as such (say, by putting them all within a rectangle/circle/oval with the possibility of giving the subgroup a name and a short description)? I'm looking to take fairly complicated graphs and give Mathematica hints of what to separate out and emphasize as more related than others, rather than just hoping for adjacency. Any suggestions for good tools to help with this? I didn't see anything obvious in Mathematica itself.
