Sharing my work for “Advanced Methods III”

This semester I’m taking the live version of the Data Analysis class by Jeff Leek. His more popular version of the course is available through Coursera.  One of the things that Jeff promotes is reproducibility and sharing code. I share that tendency and thus created a Git repository for my homework and code for the class: lcollado753. I’m...

Visualizing colors()

The other day I learnt about the existance of the colors() vector in R which specifies all the character-based colors like “light blue”, “black”, etc. So I made a simple plot to visualize them all. Here’s the code: mat <- matrix(1:length(colors()), ncol = 9, byrow= TRUE) df <- data.frame(col = colors(), ...

The new visualization package for genome data in Bioconductor: ggbio

It’s been a while since I’ve been waiting for the release of a visualization package in Bioconductor. Back in 2008 I was really impressed by the power of GenomeGraphs and I have used it in multiple occasions. Yet from both the Bioconductor Developer Meeting in Heidelberg 2010 and BioC2011 I’ve been waiting for the release of...

The talk was under the context of the Introduction to Bioinformatics Seminar Series whose goal is to familiarize the new students with the bioinformatics...
