Data Visualization and Exploration Tools: April 29 – May 1 conference, Boston
April 29, 2014 @ 12:00 am - May 1, 2014 @ 12:00 am
The BioIT World Conference and Expo in Boston, scheduled for April 29 – May 1, will feature a Data and Visualization Tools Track. The track will showcase how to design, implement and evaluate visualization techniques and tools that offer real value to the user both in support of genomics and sequencing research, as well as in drug discovery and development. The conference will present case studies that showcase approaches to data visualization and analysis that address important challenges in genomics, pathway analysis, oncology and drug discovery. The program includes: Variant View: Visualizing Sequence Variants in their Gene Context Tamara Munzner, Ph.D., Professor, Computer Science, University of British Columbia The Variant View visualization tool supports variant impact assessment with an information-dense visual encoding that provides maximal information at the overview level, in contrast to the extensive navigation required by currently-prevalent genome browsers… Read More A Compendium of Next-Generation Clustered Heat Maps for Interactive Exploration of TCGA Data John N. Weinstein, M.D., Ph.D., Professor & Chair, Bioinformatics & Computational Biology, Division of Quantitative Sciences, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) program is generating comprehensive molecular profiles of more than 25 clinical tumor types, the first 12 of which have been incorporated into a Pan-Cancer project. One challenge is statistical analysis of the resulting profiles; a second is the visual detective… Read More Making the UCSC Genome Browser Work for You Robert Kuhn, Ph.D., Associate Director, UCSC Genome Browser, Center for Biomolecular Science and Engineering University of California, Santa Cruz The UCSC Genome Browser provides visualization tools for a large genomic database spanning more than 100 animals. New features include a tool to analyze sequence variant data and hosting organisms not part of the UCSC infrastructure. Browser views of user data may be saved and shared… Read More Visualizing the Broad Institute’s Connectivity Map Bang Wong, Creative Director, Broad Institute of MIT & Harvard; Adjunct Assistant Professor, Art as Applied to Medicine, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine The CMap is a catalog of a gene-expression data generated by exposing cells to chemical and genetic modifiers. Depicting findings from this 26 trillion point dataset requires thoughtful decisions about data presentation. I will describe how we apply design principles to develop… Read More Integrated Analysis and Visualization of Large-Scale Biological Data with the Refinery Platform Nils Gehlenborg, Ph.D., Research Associate, Center for Biomedical Informatics, Harvard Medical School Data sets with dozens or hundreds of samples are now common in molecular biology and the development of visualization tools for such large and complex data sets requires extensive software infrastructure. To address these challenges, we have developed the Refinery Platform… Read More Web-Based Visualization and Visual Analysis for High-Throughput Genomics with Galaxy Jeremy Goecks, Ph.D., Computational Biology Institute, George Washington University Learn about how to use the popular, web-based Galaxy platform to analyze and visualize your high-throughput genomics data. Galaxy visualizations require only a web browser to use and no software or data downloads. Galaxy visualizations include a genome browser, Circos plot… Read More NetGestalt: Integrating Multidimensional Omics Data over Biological Networks Bing Zhang, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Biomedical Informatics, Vanderbilt University School of Medicine Node-link diagram-based network visualization becomes inadequate as network size and data complexity increase. NetGestalt exploits the inherent hierarchical modular architecture of biological networks to achieve high scalability. It allows simultaneous presentation… Read More Caleydo Entourage: Visualizing Relationships between Biological Pathways Alexander Lex, Ph.D., Researcher, Harvard School of Engineering & Applied Sciences This talk will introduce Entourage, a visualization technique for analyzing interrelationships between multiple related biological pathways. We use a novel technique – contextual subsets – to determine and present parts of other pathways that are relevant in the context of a focus pathway… Read More Visit http://www.bio-itworldexpo.com/Data-Visualization/ for a complete agenda.
