Data Vizz – When science meets art

Report of the activity:


Hello everyone! Please take note of the change of room!

We want to talk about how researchers show and visualize bioinformatic data to make results understandable and meaningful.We want to give tips and help to the assistants to make them improve they everyday usage of the most advanced visualization frameworks.


During BUB#2, we are going to learn how to use infographics and design to integrate a variety of information and illustrate ideas effectively. We’ll understand how the grammar of graphics can help us asking the right questions to explore our data and we’ll find out how to ensure a balance between aesthetic form and functionality in graphical representations. Finally, we’ll put all these concepts into practice in a hands on session; you’re encouraged to bring along your own data and share your data visualization problems/nightmares with us!

The activity is open to everybody, not just bioinformaticians. No laptop needed, just hands to paint!
