Applications in Biology / Bioinformatics


As the genome sequencing projects proceed, scientists have gained access to tremendous amounts of biological information. Due to the difficulties inherent in understanding large quantities of data, information visualization techniques have become an attractive option for the field of bioinformatics. Using information visualization, researchers can see experimental results more clearly than by simply viewing raw numbers. This page highlights our work in presenting and interacting with these data.
