Isometric Blocks

There are many methods for looking at genetic data. This piece combines several of them into a single visual display. It’s a way of showing the power of interactivity. What do we gain when we can quickly flip between different methods? How can animation enhance the read of data?

When comparing the DNA of two people, you'll see single letter changes every few thousand letters. An interesting feature of SNPs is that their ordering has distinct patterns, where sets of consecutive changes are most often found together. There are many methods for looking at this data, so this piece combines several of them into a single visual display. View full project description.
