Getting poster data...
Sean O'Donoghue, Jim Procter, and Nils Gehlenberg (EMBL Heidelberg, Germany)Computational visualization is a primary way that biologists interact with their data. Today, as the volume and diversity of biological data is rapidly increasing, biologists urgently need improved visualization tools. The goal of the first VIZBI workshop was to bring together, for the first time, researchers developing and using systems to visualize a broad range of biological data, including sequences, genomes, phylogenies, macromolecular structures, systems biology, microscopy, and magnetic resonance imaging. The workshop focused on the visualization of processed and annotated data in their biological context, rather than the processing of raw data. The key themes of the first workshop were to review the state-of-the-art and to highlights current and future challenges across this broad range of visualization systems. VIZBI 2010 was primarily sponsored by the EMBO and was held in March, 2010, at the EMBL in Heidelberg, Germany.
