Michael Brudno: From Genome to Genomic Medicine

Michael Brudno ( begins with a whistlestop tour of the history of genomic data visualization, from dot plots to the integrative genome annotation visualizations provided by modern genome browsers. He then showcases his own tool, Savant, which allows visualization of read density and genome variation data such as SNPs, and describes MedSavant, one of the first of a new breed of tools designed to meet the visualization and analysis needs of clinicians, rather than biological researchers. This talk was presented at VIZBI 2012, an international conference series on visualizing biological data ( This video was filmed and distributed with permission under a creative common license.
