About the Conference

VIZBI 2013, the 4th international meeting on Visualizing Biological Data was held March 20-22, at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, Cambridge MA, USA. VIZBI 2013 brought together scientists, illustrators, and designers actively using or developing computational visualization to study a diverse range of biological data.

The conference featured 21 invited talks that reviewed the state-of-the-art and challenges in visualizing data from genomes, transcripts, proteins, cells, organisms, and populations. Prior to the meeting (March 19), there were tutorials on several visualization tools. The conference program is available online or as a PDF.

All VIZBI 2013 participants had the opportunity to present a poster describing their work. Posters from VIZBI 2013 posters can be accessed at
