I do not know any graph visualization tool doing a good job at drawing a
readable picture of 10,000 nodes. It probably becomes challenging with a
few hundred nodes.
However, a sliding window on the graph may sometimes provide good results
(from a cognitive point of view, I mean), assuming that the user is able to
move the window dynamically.

I have started to develop a graphical browser for the GO database. It has
most of the features I wanted, but it has not been tested yet. This is why
I prefer to answer off list. You are welcome to try it (at your own risks!)
if you wish. Any suggestions and comments are welcome.
