I am delighted and honoured to have Circos visualizations included as part of the Science Express project. Briefly, this is a public education effort lead by Max Planck institute to raise and foster science awareness and education to the public. The project is a 13 car train, lavishly repurposed into a rolling interactive science exhibition. For those of you who can't experience the project first-hand, there is a wonderful virtual tour.
