Web-based Visual Comparison And Exploration Of Genome Interaction Maps
HiGlass is a tool for exploring genomic contact matrices and tracks. Please take a look at the examples and documentation for a description of the ways that it can be configured to explore and compare contact matrices at varying scales.
An interactive web application for exploring and visualizing regions-of-interest in large genome interaction matrices.
HiPiler is an interactive visualization interface for the exploration and visualization of regions-of-interest (ROI) in large genome interaction matrices. ROIs can be defined, e.g., by sets of adjacent rows and columns, or by specific visual patterns in the matrix. ROIs are first-class objects in HiPiler, which represents them as thumbnail-like “snippets”. Snippets can be laid out automatically based on their data and meta attributes. They are linked back to the matrix and can be explored interactively.
Visualizing Alternative Splicing in Genes
Vials is a novel visual analysis tool that enables analysts to explore the various datasets that scientists use to make judgments about isoforms: the abundance of reads associated with the coding regions of the gene, evidence for junctions, i.e., edges connecting the coding regions, and predictions of isoform frequencies. Vials is scalable as it allows for the simultaneous analysis of many samples in multiple groups.
Visualizing Intersecting Sets
Understanding relationships between sets is an important analysis task. The major challenge in this context is the combinatorial explosion of the number of set intersections if the number of sets exceeds a trivial threshold. To address this, we introduce UpSet, a novel visualization technique for the quantitative analysis of sets, their intersections, and aggregates of intersections.
Visualization for Molecular Biology
Caleydo is an open source visual analysis framework targeted at biomolecular data. The biggest strength of Caleydo is the visualization of interdependencies between multiple datasets. Caleydo can load tabular data and groupings/clusterings. You can explore relationships between multiple groupings, between different datasets and see how your data maps onto pathways. Caleydo has been successfully used to analyze mRNA, miRNA, methylation, copy number variation, mutation status and clinical data as well as other dataset types.
Face Detail Database
The MERL / Princeton Face Detail Database is a set of statistics describing the high-frequency facial geometry of over a hundred scanned subjects. These statistics describe facial geometry as a spatially-varying Heeger-Bergen texture.
Skin Reflectance Database
The MERL / ETH Skin Reflectance Database is a set of statistics for parameters of the Torrance-Sparrow and Blinn-Phong analytic BRDF models and face albedo. We derived these statistics from measuring skin reflectance of 149 subjects of varying age, gender, and race. We are making the collected statistics publicly available to the research community for applications in face synthesis and analysis.
