Getting poster data...
Trevor Paterson, Martin Graham, Jessie Kennedy, Andy Law (Edinburgh Napier University & The Roslin Institute, University of Edinburgh)VIPER (Visual Interactive Pedigree ExploreR) is a data cleansing visualisation for pedigree genotype data, which is used to analyse and redeem otherwise unusable pedigree data sets. Interactive elements such as filterable histograms, tables, and a pedigree view combine to allow biologists and bioinformaticians to dynamically and iteratively mask pieces of information from a dirty data set and graduate towards a cleaned version of the data. This clean data can then be saved and used in ongoing biological analyses. Cleansing of such data is complicated over and above simple data wrangling in that change or masking of the pedigree structure propagates errors to new parts of the pedigree. Thus a branching history of data manipulations is kept to allow users to restore the data and visualisation to any of the previous states it has travelled through.
