Title: Make Big Data Alive: Interactive Data Visualization in Metabolomics Research
Author(s): Jinxi Liu* and Ella Temprosa
Companies: The George Washington University and The George Washington University
Keywords: Data visualization ; Interactive graphics ; Metabolomics

Metabolomics research has rapidly evolved. In this data-intensive field, effective and simple data visualization tools empower researchers to present the big data in a meaningful way that people can quickly understand and use. Interactive visualization allows self-service faceting, probing and drill down. We developed several interactive graphics applications for metabolomics research using Shiny by RStudio coupled with R packages ggvis and plotly. The applications present information including quality control and regression analysis of more than 3000 metabolites in thousands of different models. Results are conveyed both in data tables and statistical graphs. Data tables contain complete information and are downloadable. In statistical graphs, users are allowed to view pointwise values using mouse-over controls, to drill down for detail through zooming, to compare and contrast the models and to display subsets of results by filtering on p-values, treatment groups, model adjustments, metabolites classes or even selecting an individual metabolite. The application can be published on websites to allow public or authenticated access and share with others.

Authors who are presenting talks have a * after their name.
