Manuscript preprint now online – Phinch data visualization framework

The preprint for the Phinch software paper is now online (one of my Legacy Eisen Lab projects) Please enjoy the PDF on bioRxiv while we patiently wait for the manuscript to go through the peer review process:

Bik, H.M. and Pitch Interactive (2014) Phinch: An interactive, exploratory data visualization framework for –Omic datasets, bioRxiv, doi: http://dx.doi.org/10.1101/009944

If you’re not familiar with this project – Phinch (http://phinch.org) is an open-source framework for visualizing biological data, funded by a grant from the Alfred P. Sloan foundation. This project has been an interdisciplinary collaboration between researchers (driven by myself at UC Davis) and Pitch Interactive, a data visualization studio in Oakland, CA. If you’re interested in loading up some data in this visualization tool, check out our GitHub wiki for full instructions on preparing files and metadata (if you’re already using the QIIME pipeline, you should be ready to go in ~10 minutes…we tried to make it that easy!)
