VISUAL ANALYTICS OF MULTIMODAL BIOLOGICAL DATA

Hendrik Rohn, Christian Klukas, Falk Schreiber

Abstract

Biological data is measured in increasing quantity and quality, resulting in data describing biological systems from different perspectives. Based on data integration methods, visual data mining and visual analytics can be used to promote the understanding of combined biological data and facilitate the exploration process. In this paper a number of view types are presented and integrated into a comprehensive software tool, in order to support researchers in visualizing flexible combinations of multimodal biological data and to create integrated views on comprehensive datasets spanning multiple “omics” areas. A number of interaction techniques accompany these views, enabling the efficient exploration of the data.
