Circos Used in a David Cronenberg project about
Chromosomes is a David Cronenberg project which presents 70 images from his films, each accompanied by a text piece written by people from the world of art and science. I had the opportunity to contribute text to accompany the red bathtub photo.
The artbook is available for sale.
Little Fly, Thy Summer's Play...
The cover image shows a comparison of human and fruit fly genomes. The links indicate orthologous genes — genes in both genomes whose proteins are similar.
This cover won the cover award at 39th Annual 2009 Bookbuilders West Book Show.
Circos Takes a Train Ride
A Circos visualization is included as part of the Science Express project.
A public education effort lead by Max Planck institute, Science Express is a 13 car train, lavishly repurposed into a rolling interactive science exhibition. The purpose of the project is to raise and foster science awareness and education to the public.
Oxford Biology Uses Circos for Book Cover
A Circos image designed by Martin Krzywinski appears on the cover of Building Bioformatics Solutions with Perl, R and MySQL by Conrad Bessant, Ian Shadforth, and Darren Oakley (Oxford Press).
One of the most exciting and diverse projects that used Circos is the David Cronenberg project Chromosomes which included illustrations and my own interpretation of the Red Tub.
