Webbased Interactive Omics visualizatioN

The WIlsON app is intended to interpret all types of quantitative data (e.g. multi-omics) which can be broken down to a key feature (such as genes or proteins) and assigned text columns and/or numeric values. It is designed to support common experimental designs by making use of individual data levels resulting from primary analysis, shown in the figure below.

Experimental Design

The app provides a web-based analysis and visualization solution, realizing the basic idea to offer a flexible tool to the user without codifying any fixed or precalculated plots. This unavoidably leads to a certain degree of complexity. (And, the user should know what he/she wants to see:-) )

Once the experimental data is loaded into the app, the user can generate various plots following four basic steps:

  1. Filter for features of interest based on categorical (annotation) or numerical values (e.g. transcripts, genes, proteins, probes)
  2. Select plot type
  3. Adjust plot parameters
  4. Render/download result
