Genetics to Finance – Amazed By Open Source d3 and r

September 19, 2013

(This article was first published on Timely Portfolio, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

Open source amazes me by the speed of distribution and the power of iteration.  Take for example the very  fine combination of R and d3 provided here at  The correlation matrix with scatterplot instantly struck me as a wonderful way to liven up Pretty Correlation Map of PIMCO Funds.  Since it is open and MIT licensed, within an hour I was able  to come up with this.


Please take it and make it even better.  Thanks so much to Karl Broman for this great work.
