As modern biological experimental methods deliver data of increasing volume and complexity, researchers are becoming overwhelmed and increasingly unable to fully benefit from potential insights and advances in understanding that may be buried within data.

The Biodata Visualisation team focuses on developing methods and tools that help life scientists exploit these large datasets to gain insight into underlying biological and biomedical processes. We also use data visualisation to communicate complex science to the general public via biomedical animations.
