Complex Data Visualization: Approach and Application

Date & Time


About Simons Foundation Presidential Lectures

Simons Foundation Presidential Lectures are free public colloquia centered on four main themes: Biology, Physics, Mathematics and Computer Science, and Neuroscience and Autism Science. These curated, high-level scientific talks feature leading scientists and mathematicians and are intended to foster discourse and drive discovery among the broader NYC-area research community. We invite those interested in the topic to join us for this weekly lecture series.

This Biotech Symposium will focus on the visualization and representation of analytic results from complex data sets. Dropping costs of DNA sequencing coupled with the development of various sequencing modalities are driving the generation of large, complex genomics datasets. In addition, longitudinal sampling and the pairing of genomics data with real-time data collection from wearable devices promise to increase the complexity of analyses. In this context, visualization techniques are likely to play a crucial role in making results understandable.
