Chapter 9: Plotting Biological Data

Technical advancements, such as new sequencing technologies or machine learning algorithms, are driving a revolution in biology. That revolution is expanding the fields of bioinformatics and computational biology. The large amount of biological data we are generating nowadays also pushes innovation on the data visualization front. Interactive visualizations are essential for navigating such extensive and complex data. Biological information is also highly heterogeneous; we can have sequences, medical images, and geographical locations, to name a few. Biological data visualization is a vast subject, from which we will only explore ways to visualize phylogenetic trees and protein sequences and structures in ...
