Hervé Tettelin: Visualizing Metagenomics & Functional Diversity Data

Hervé Tettelin ( gives a lucid summary of methods for visually comparing genomes across populations, including members of a species, or organisms sharing an environment, such as the human microbiome. He highlights the case of microbial pan-genomes, and discusses many vexing visualization challenges faced in this emerging field, particularly population dynamics. This talk was presented at VIZBI 2011, an international conference series on visualizing biological data ( funded by NIH & EMBO.
