Converting spreadsheets to tidy data - Part 2

Posted by , on 29 September 2020

The superplot was recently proposed as a data visualization strategy that improves the communication of experimental results (Lord et al, 2020). To simplify the visualization of data with a superplot, ...

Crafting plots for movies

Posted by , on 6 May 2020

In a previous blog I explained how animated plots can be made to illustrate the dynamics of data. Animated plots go nicely together with the movies from which the data ...

Dynamic display of data with animated plots

Posted by , on 27 April 2020

Data from time-lapse experiments is often displayed in a graph or plot, to visualize the dynamics of biological systems (Goedhart, 2020). Ironically, the perception of the dynamics is largely lost ...

Data Visualization with Flying Colors

Posted by , on 29 August 2019

The importance of barrier-free use of colors in images and graphs has been highlighted in letters to editors (Miall, 2007), papers (Geissbuehler and Lasser, 2013, Levine, 2009), editorials (anonymous, 2007), ...

Data manipulation? It's normal(ization)!

Posted by , on 25 June 2019

In a previous blog, I have highlighted several ways to visualize the cell-to-cell heterogeneity from time-lapse imaging data. However, I have ignored that data is often rescaled in a way ...

Posted by , on 20 June 2019

Of all the charts being ridiculed at WTFviz, many get shamed for their lack of a zero-baseline. When teaching DataViz, zero-baselines are invariably a topic of debate. The rules about ...

Visualizing the heterogeneity of single cell data from time-lapse imaging

Posted by , on 12 December 2018

When we examined the kinetics of Rho GTPase activity in endothelial cells in response to receptor stimulation (Reinhard, 2017), we noticed considerable cell-to-cell heterogeneity. In the original work we published ...

Make a difference: the alternative for p-values

Posted by , on 8 October 2018

Calculation and reporting of p-values is common in scientific publications and presentations (Cristea and Ioannidis, 2018). Usually, the p-value is calculated to decide whether two conditions, e.g. control and treatment, ...

Visualizing data with R/ggplot2 - One more time

Posted by , on 26 June 2018

Experiments are rarely performed in isolation. Usually, several conditions are compared in parallel or sequential experiments. This experimental strategy also applies to time-dependent data, e.g. from timelapse imaging. So, naturally, ...
