I recently came across a compilation of columns that were originally published in Nature Methods. The compilation was subsequently published in 2015 as a document that covers data visualization and presentation of scientific data. It is a brief collection (40 pages) that provides a good set of suggestions when presenting and visualizing complex data sets.
Columns include general topics such as:
- Color Coding
- Negative Space
- Heat maps
It also covers areas specific to Bioinformatics such as:
- Representing the genome
- Representing genomic structure
- Visualizing biological data
As expected, Information content is high and presentation is professional and all within 40 pages, whats not to like, I learned a few techniques that will help with my data presentation and visualization moving forwards.
