Epigenome Browser https://tess.elixir-europe.org/materials/epigenome-browser Ting Wang (http://wang.wustl.edu/) addresses many of the challenges of navigating the complexity of genomic data and showcases the WashU Epigenome Browser that he is developing. The browser aims to give investigators maximum flexibility to explore and navigate the available genomic data in multiple tracks, upload their own data as well as explore long-range interactions. He also highlights the need for the genome browsers to act as community resources and bioinformatics engines with the ability to analyse the mined data.

Visualization of Biomolecular Structures: State of the Art https://tess.elixir-europe.org/materials/visualization-of-biomolecular-structures-state-of-the-art Structural properties of molecules are of primary concern in many fields. This report provides a comprehensive overview on techniques that have been developed in the fields of molecular graphics and visualization with a focus on applications in structural biology. The field heavily relies on computerized geometric and visual representations of three-dimensional, complex, large, and time-varying molecular structures. The report presents a taxonomy that demonstrates which areas of molecular visualization have already been extensively investigated and where the field is currently heading. It discusses visualizations for molecular structures, strategies for efficient display regarding image quality and frame rate, covers different aspects of level of detail, and reviews visualizations illustrating the dynamic aspects of molecular simulation data. The report concludes with an outlook on promising and important research topics to enable further success in advancing the knowledge about interaction of molecular structures.Categories and Subject Descriptors (according to ACM CCS): I.3.5 [Computer Graphics]: Computational Geometry and Object Modeling-Curve, surface, solid, and object representations Created at: EuroVis 2015.

Visualising dynamic genetics in human populations

Genetic and environmental variation affect all complex human traits and disorders. Recent large-scale genome-wide association studies have identified some of the specific genetic variants, and we often assume these associations will hold true irrespective of context. However, our research shows...

Visualising dynamic genetics in human populations https://tess.elixir-europe.org/materials/visualising-dynamic-genetics-in-human-populations Genetic and environmental variation affect all complex human traits and disorders. Recent large-scale genome-wide association studies have identified some of the specific genetic variants, and we often assume these associations will hold true irrespective of context. However, our research shows that the relationship between genotype and phenotype can change across a lifetime or in different environments. For example, some genetic variants may have larger effects in adulthood or in the centre of cities. Data visualisation plays a vital role in bringing researchers together across disciplines to understand these dynamic patterns of gene-environment interaction.
