Today was another challenging day working with our transcriptome data. Ending the day with visualizations of our data was a really useful way for me to get a better sense of how to understand and interpret our data. It also is really fun. I’m interested in learning more about what makes a good data visualization and learning some new tools to produce them.
There are more details in my IPython notebook about exactly what I did today and what programs I used to get from data to visualization. Here’s one of the figures I made with Revigo. I picked it not because it’s the best visualization, but because I’d like to explore this kind of network visualization more in the coming week to figure out how I can use it for myself and to communicate what we’re learning with other people.
