With the advancement of omics technologies, especially sequencing, the rise of big data in life sciences has exploded and the demand for effective and efficient data analysis and visualization tools has grown exponentially. Bioinformatics is defined as the application of computational and analytical tools in the capture and interpretation of biological data. Bioinformatics is essential for data management in modern biology and medicine, especially for data analysis and visualization. Based on bioinformatic tools, researchers can identify patterns, relationships, and insights from large data sets generated by experiments and studies. Visualization, on the other hand, allows researchers to present their findings in a clear and meaningful way. By visualizing data, trends, patterns, and anomalies can be easily identified that may be missed with simple data analysis. Moreover, visualization provides a means to communicate research findings to peers, policymakers, and the public.
CD Genomics invited Jorge Bouças, the Head of Bioinformatics at the Max Planck Institute, to share his interactive open-source web apps Flaski for data analysis and visualization in life sciences.
