|Researcher surrounded by data|
One difficulty with this type of research is the sheer amount of data that is generated. A human genome contains 25 000 genes and a lot more DNA besides. How do scientists effectively work with such a huge amount of data? We know that pictures relay vast amounts of information very efficiently and this company are maximising the use of that principle. Research data is projected on all surfaces of a specialised viewing room and the researcher can interact with the computer using arm and hand movements.
Together with specialised software to highlight groups of genes on demand (not that dissimilar to the ways we carry our searches on massive datasets using Google search engine) this might be one helpful way genomes and their transcriptional data can be navigated in the future.
