Title Presenter(s) Date Location Abstract
Biostat Seminar - Interactive Graphics for Genetic Data

Karl Broman
Professor, Biostatistics & Medical Informatics, University of Wisconsin-Madison

The value of interactive graphics for making sense of high-dimensional data has long been appreciated but is still not in routine use. I will describe my efforts to develop interactive graphical tools for genetic data, using JavaScript and D3. (The tools are available as an R package: R/qtlcharts, I will focus on an expression genetics experiment in the mouse, with gene expression microarray data on each of six tissues, plus high-density genotype data, in each of 500 mice. I argue that in research with such data, precise statistical inference is not so important as data visualization.
