The complexity of data is increasing fast, but the users’ ability to understand seems to be constant. The biological researchers we collaborate with would like to see the data in some user-friendly tools, but, the tools, computer monitors, and machines have their limitations and do not always precisely show the data under investigation. <BR><BR> We experiment with visualisation tools and develop new techniques which will more precisely express the complexity of data. We examined existing tools used by researchers and created a classification which will help to find a solution. We developed a prototype called VisGenome. VisGenome is an application for visualising single and comparative representations of the rat, the mouse, and the human chromosomes. During my PhD, I am going to conduct a user study and experiments with both existing and new applications for genome visualisation.</ABSTRACT></RECORD></RECORDS></XML>
