Interactive Visualization of Genetic Data

by Santina Lin for Global Alliance for Genomics & Health

Our DNA are 99.9% identical, but we are all unique. To see why that's the case, GA4GH has implemented an API that allows you to search for these human genomic data to see how the role these 0.1% play in determining our phenotypes and diseases. Now, we want to make these data more interpretable by building a visualization platform with interactive graphs. The application would allow users to better utilize and generate insights from variant information available on GA4GH.
