Presenting vast amounts of information in a meaningful and usable manner is increasingly an everyday challenge in many domains. This is especially true when working with health care and life science data. The advancement in sequencing technologies along with their continuously decreasing costs will no doubt result in an even larger surge of incoming data along with an increased need and urgency to easily make sense—and use of this data…earlier.
