Visualization of Gene Combinations
Advances in the field of microarray technology have attracted a lot of attention in the last years. More and more biological experiments are conducted based on microarrays. The challenge researchers face today is to analyze and understand the collected data. We present a visual approach to support understanding microarray data. In contrast to other visualization techniques, which represent expression of genes, we go one step further and make a switch to combinations of genes. Gene combinations bear more information, and hence, can lead to new hypotheses about the data. However, the increased amount of information imposes several challenges to an interactive visualization approach. We propose analytical and visual methods to deal with these challenges. Keywords— Information Visualization, Visual Analysis, Microarray Data.
