Jim Robinson: Visualizing functional genomics, epigenetics, and 3D genomes

Jim Robinson ( presents four vignettes charting the evolution of visualization methods and experimental approaches for detecting and exploring functional regions involved in the regulation of gene expression. Beginning with non-coding RNA data from four years ago, he demonstrates the increasing complexity of experimental data and how track based visualizations can lead to new insight. His final vignette concerns data from cross-linking experiments, and shows how their results can now be used to view epigenetic data in context of the 3D structure of the human genome.
