An objective of data visualization is to communicate information clearly and efficiently to users via the information graphics selected, such as a table or chart. Effective visualization helps users analyze and interpret the represented data and evidence. It makes complex data more accessible, understandable and usable.

We can produce visualization media in various formats, as is necessary for your needs. Examples include:

  • Illustration / figure
  • Animation / video
  • Interactive / web

The Data Visualization Service consists of expert consultation with you to:

  1. Understand your goals at communicating the data in question,
  2. Refine the data to allow it to be consumed for visualization, and
  3. Identify and implement visualization techniques and tools to output a static and/or interactive visual object.

 

Examples

Collaborative Networks / Social Graphs
Use Case The Beta Cell Biology Consortium Coordinating Center needed to visualize the research networks that existed within its organization.
Data Relational database provided funding data for all BCBC investigators. Data is queried and transformed to JSON, which is then passed to the Flash object.
Technology used Flash/Flare API
Media Type Interactive /Web
Static Image
URL http://www.betacell.org/research/networks/

 

Interactive Gene Networks
Use Case High-throughput functional genomics experiments (microarray, RNA-Seq, ChIP-Seq) have illuminated millions of gene-gene relationships and interactions. The BCBC has warehoused all of this data, but needed an interactive tool to allow scientists to interactively browse though this data in a localized manner. We constructed a local gene network visualization tool that met the needs of the scientists and bioinformaticians.
Data Millions of records described entities (such as genes) and the relationships between these, including data provenance, type of relationship, directionality and more.
Technology used: Flash/Flare API, Javascript, HTML5, PHP, PostgreSQL
Static Image
URL Pancreatic bud formation: Mnx1, Pdx1, Ptf1a, Nkx6-1, Nkx2-2, Cpa1, Myc, Pbx1, Slc2a2

 

Multi-Resolution Microscopy Image Viewer
Use Case A high-content imaging project (Al Powers, Vanderbilt University) required the development of web tools to allow for the annotation and viewing of large-scale and 3D microscopy imagery.
Data Microscopy data in the form of LSM, AFI and SVS files
Technology used: Google Maps API (version 2 and 3), PostgreSQL, PHP, HTML5
Media Type Interactive / Web

 

Microscopy 3D Image Viewer
Use Case A high-content imaging project (Al Powers, Vanderbilt University) required the development of web tools to allow for the annotation and viewing of large-scale and 3D microscopy imagery.
Data Microscopy data in the form of LSM, AFI and SVS files
Technology used: HTML5, Javascript
Media Type Interactive / Web
