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.
