Bio-Informatics Visualization Workshop This workshop (25-35 participants) will
present current implementations and challenges for researchers seeking to
understand genomic and proteomic data by applying advanced visualization
techniques. Current topics include DNA microarray chip data, genomic sequences,
protein structures, gene ontologies, and biological pathways. Visualization
methods include 2-d and 3-d scattergrams, color-coded heatmaps, hierarchical
treemaps, temporal data searching, topographic displays, and hierarchical
clustering presentations. Related data mining techniques that are enhanced by
visualization include supervised and unsupervised classification/categorization,
principal components analysis, and multi-dimensional scaling. Biologically
relevant tasks include comparing samples, identifying similar and different
genes, identifying targets, defining pathways, and generating hypotheses.
