This video shows 5 challenging features of genomic data and some visualization tools that tackle each of these challenges to help bioinformaticians make sense of complex biological data.
There are 5 major challenges to plotting genomic data:
- Showing sequence reads as intervals
- Multiple datasets in one view
- Multiple chromosomes and whole-genome context
- Big data
- Long-range and complex variation
See the video for examples of how various visualization tools have gone beyond the bar chart to solve these problems.
