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
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.
The image was adapted from Figure 1 of our paper 1 2010 Evolution of an adenocarcinoma in response to selection by targeted kinase inhibitors Genome Biol 11:R82.
Report on Business makes the connection between companies and perks in their January 2011 issue.
Deutsche Post DHL uses Circos in a printed advertisement for the Mail & Logistics Group.
Circos images are used as visual signposts for bioinformatics and biological data analysis. The image below appears on a strategy document from the Harvard School of Public Health.

American Scientist cover, which I created with Circos, wins Silver EXCEL Award in the Cover Illustration category from Society of National Association Publications (SNAP).
"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).
