One of the major difficulties with genomic data is creating visual representations that enable people to quickly and easily identify patterns. This is a combination of balancing:
- how much data to show
- the detail of the data
- the arrangement of the data
- the coloration of the data
Here are examples visualization of a codon substitution matrix generated by SynSub and the refined version. One uses the traditional rainbow of colors, one bases values off of red, yellow and blue.
