Students will present their work on developing a visualization of gene ontology terms of genes. This work was carried out by 4 undergraduate students over Spring 2014, as part of the First Experiences in Research Program of the University of Pittsburgh, as an equivalent of 2 credit units course. The goal was to develop the visualization with D3 and to analyze GO terms of some sets of genes that are associated with specific diseases.
