Pathway Visualization to the next level

The laboratory of bioinformatics of Wageningen University has put together some really cool hardware. In the picture below you see their tiled display, consisting of 12 high-resolution monitors, powered by a single workstation.

This setup gives you a lot of resolution to play with. We managed to display all major metabolic pathways from WikiPathways simultaneously, at full resolution, and map microarray data as well. When you’re standing right next to the screens, it feels like the data is all around you. That really encourages you to explore, and make connections across the pathways. That’s just much harder to do on a single screen.
