Data visualization in bioinformatics
During this hackathon we explored what makes a good figure and how to avoid common pitfalls. We discussed which rules are important and which we can treat as suggestions.
During the hackathon the participants were tasked with creating compelling visualisations describing one of the Cancer types investigated within the TCGA consortium. Each team preapred a presentation presenting the cancer type and key results from the analysis of transcriptomic, mutation and clinical data. They created interactive visualisations and shiny apps that allowed users to investigate the results in more detail.
