Human Genome Explorer
Interactive genome and interactome data-visualization
The Human Genome Explorer was developed by David Gann as a graduation project in Biological Sciences, Bio-Informatics at the University of Konstanz in 2011. The tool is intended to support researchers in genomics, proteomics, microbiology etc. It is also designed as a multi-user exhibit that can be attractive for science and education related museums.
The project is still continued. In 2013 it was exhibited at the Ars Electronica Festival.
