Data Visualization Workshop

Published: 1 Month agoNews

Ryo Sakai, PharmiWeb Solutions' Data Visualisation Lead, ran a successful Data Visalization Workshop at the European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI).

As biological data-sets increase in size and complexity, we are moving from hypothesis-driven research to a data-driven research. Due to this paradigm shift, exploration of data for insights has become more crucial than ever before.

This 5-day workshop (30 Jan – 3 Feb 2017) was organised by Prof. Jan Aerts (KU Leuven), Nikiforos Karamanis (EMBL-EBI), Vera Master (EMBL-EBI), and our Data Visualization Lead (Ryo Sakai). Ryo led the practical sessions to implement creative visualizations using the P5 JavaScript library. The workshop participants were biologists (PhD students, Post-doc researchers, and Principal investigators) with varying previous programming skills. Although the 5-day period is not nearly long enough to cover every topic in Data Visualization, or to be a fully-fledged JavaScript programmer, participants were able to implement web-based interactive data visualization systems by the end of the session.
