Nicholas Luscombe: Visualizing Gene Regulatory Networks

Nicholas Luscombe ( gives a lucid and thorough account of how his group studies transcriptional regulation using primarily four visualization methods: genome browsers, heat-maps, networks, and 3D spatial visualization. He identifies three key challenges: (1) integration, particularly switching between visualizations; (2) managing new information types such as quantitative data, dynamics, & population variability; (3) communicating complex data to peers. This talk was presented at VIZBI 2011, an international conference series on visualizing biological data ( funded by NIH & EMBO.
