Featured article: The role of visualization and 3-D printing in biological data mining

Can 3-D printing be used as a visualization technology in biological data mining? It is our working hypothesis that visualization methods can greatly enhance our ability to make sense of data mining results. We discuss the advantages and disadvantages of this novel method. Find out more in our recently published brief review of 3-D printing along with a case study to illustrate how it might be used in a research setting.

Dr Marylyn Ritchie is the Paul Berg Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and Director for the Center for Systems Genomics at The Pennsylvania State University. She is also the founding Director of Biomedical and Translational Informatics at Geisinger Health System. Dr Ritchie is a statistical and computational geneticist with a focus on understanding genetic architecture of complex human disease. She has expertise in developing novel bioinformatics tools for complex analysis of big data in genetics, genomics, and clinical databases, in particular in the area of pharmacogenomics. Some of her methods include Multifactor Dimensionality Reduction (MDR), the Analysis Tool for Heritable and Environmental Network Associations (ATHENA), and the Biosoftware suite for annotating/ filtering variants and genomic regions as well as building models of biological relevance for gene-gene interactions and rare-variant burden/dispersion tests.
