3D Genomic data browser

An application for 3D visualization and manipulation of genomic data.

This application visualizes genomic information mapped in a 3D space. The user can browse chromosomes, genes, all the way down to the level of amino acids, and manipulate protein molecules in 3D. It has been developed in the context of cancer reasearch, in which genomics plays an ever increasing role.

The genomic data used has been obtained from public resources like NCBI and the USCS Genome Browser, complemented with propietary detail information for specific demonstrations.

This application was part of a larger demo that we implemented using Unity. The choice of platform was driven by the requirement to render and manipulate complex 3D-structures.
