Teresa Attwood: Visualizing Sequence Alignments

Teresa Atwood ( discusses use of colour to show physical and chemical properties of protein sequence alignments, and she highlights recent published errors that resulted from poor choice of shading and colouring. She shows how the Utopia document system she co-developed can provide a solution to such problems by giving readers directly access to raw data embedded in papers, thus enabling them to verify accuracy of a published visualizations, as well as gain greater insight by exploring alternate visualizations. This talk was presented at VIZBI 2012, an international conference series on visualizing biological data ( funded by EMBO & NIH.
