Today at the VizbiPlus premiere event in Melbourne, three stunning new animations were officially launched. Each animation deals with an important topic in human health, namely: type 2 diabetes, cancer, and the link between diet, the gut microbiome and health. These are the first of six animations planned as part of the VizbiPlus project, which aims to inspire and educate the public about cutting-edge biomedical research.
The EMBL Events E-Newsletter has published an informative summary article about VIZBI 2014 entitled VIZBI 2014 – biological data visualization, music and the non-linear genome!
