New Visualization Tool Makes Snapshot Data Come Alive

Posted by mswayne on October 30, 2018 at 5:00 PM

Visualizing data is an important part of understanding the data.

In the latest version of Snapshot, scientists can now see visual representations of gene expressions through the visual analytics function, said Macauley Coggins, director of Scarborough Biotechnology. Snapshot is the company’s premier software solution that allows genome-scale model of human metabolism.

“We think that building this visualization feature will make studying gene expressions far simpler and more immersive,” said Coggins. “It will also help collaboration with other members of your research teams, or fellow students.”

The following image shows the visualization of gene expression and reaction activity for Stage 1 breast cancer using real patient data.

“This really gives the cancer researcher the best of both worlds,” said Coggins. “Often, scientists are able to immediately detect something out of the ordinary in a chart and then examine the exact data, which also easily accessed in Snapshot’s regular display.”

Coggins added that seeing the data in this form also helps with comparing data from several charts.

Snapshot is designed to help researchers:

  • Explore Gene knockin / knockout
  • Highlight potential diseases based upon cell conditions
  • Investigate drug modelling including Ibuprofen and how it affects metabolic pathways
  • Predict cellular functionality from TPM gene expression data, as well as predict a range of genetic disorders from gene expression data
