Hi everyone! I am a beginner to complex network and I am now dealing with graph. I wonder if there are any tools for me to draw graph from given vertices and edges. If not, I might have to write one myself... Thanks!

You might want to have a look at Graphviz: www.graphviz.org. The DOT-tool of graphviz creates an automatic graph layout from a textual description of the graph in a special format. There are various output formats.

Have a look at cytoscape as well (http://www.cytoscape.org/).
This may be more than you need though.
It is Java and runs fine on Ubuntu.
