Making Sense of Genomics in Virtual Reality

Virtual reality company Hammerhead VR has created a data visualization tool called VR Genomics to allow researchers to easily interact with large datasets and better integrate experimental data with genomic data. Hammerhead VR created a proof-of-concept visualization using genomic data from the the Wellcome Sanger Institute, a genomic research center, that displays a catalog of relevant annotations whenever a user “arrives” at a particular gene. Hammerhead VR hopes that its tool can reduce the time it takes for researchers to sort through genetic data and identify new correlations and patterns.

Take a look.
