Circos — a Lens for Science

Circos appears in presentation "Science as Lens" by Adam Bly, Seed's editor-in-chief. Adam writes "Science as a subject is extraordinary. There is no subject bigger, there is no subject more exciting, there's no subject changing our times more profoundly. Science as a lens is our future."

Circos and 23andMe

This image accompanied an article in Conde Nast Portfolio about the future of genomics, profiling 23andMe.

The figure shows the human genome annotated with locations of genes implicated in disease, regions of with self-similarity and those with structural variation within populations. This graphic layers a variety of data types (links, heat maps, tiles, histograms) and is a good example of a Circos image (...more).

Circos Part of Art of Knowledge

The October 2008 German Geo issue features Circos images in an article "Die Kunst der Erkenntnis" (The Art of Knowledge). The article features a large number of beautiful artistic renderings of large data sets, including a solid rendering of the flight profile of a bat, lexical structure of the bible and a US flight map.

You Look Around

Manuel Lima's article Look Around You: A Visual Exploration of Complex Networks in the September 2006 issue of Seed Magazine features a Circos image that shows the synteny between the mouse genome and human chromosome 1.

For other references to Circos usage and items of note, see examples of published images and Circos citations.

"The cover graphic is a dramatic visual representation of some of the chromosomal connections between the dog and human genomes," Schoonmaker said. "It helps readers understand how physical differences between dogs and humans, and between one dog and another, can be so large, even though they share much genetically." (more).
