BioVis 2011 Conference Proceedings. (2011)
Conference Proceeding
(2011). BioVis 2011 Conference Proceedings. In J. Kennedy, & J. Roerdink (Eds.), BioVis 2011 Conference Proceedings

The rapidly expanding field of biology creates enormous challenges for computational visualization techniques for enabling researchers to gain insight from their large and highly complex data sets. The goal of the BioVis 2011 symposium is to create t... Read More about BioVis 2011 Conference Proceedings..

A standard data model representation for taxonomic information. (2006)
Journal Article
Kennedy, J., Hyam, R., Kukla, R., & Paterson, T. (2006). A standard data model representation for taxonomic information. OMICS, 10, 220-230. https://doi.org/10.1089/omi.2006.10.220

The names used by biologists to label the observations they make are imprecise. This is an issue as workers increasingly seek to exploit data gathered from multiple, unrelated sources on line. Even when the international codes of nomenclature are fol... Read More about A standard data model representation for taxonomic information..

The Prometheus Description Model: an examination of the taxonomic description-building process and its representation (2005)
Journal Article
Pullan, M. R., Armstrong, K. E., Paterson, T., Cannon, A., Kennedy, J. B., Watson, M. F., …Raguenaud, C. (2005). The Prometheus Description Model: an examination of the taxonomic description-building process and its representation. Taxon, 54(3), 751-765. https://doi.org/10.2307/25065431

A model for representing taxonomic descriptive data is presented. The model has been developed in response to the growing requirement for the global exchange of descriptive data. Meaningful exchange of data requires that data be represented in a form...

Time-series Explorer: An Animated Information Visualisation for Microarray Time-course Data (2005)
Journal Article
Craig, P., Kennedy, J., & Cumming, A. (2005). Time-series Explorer: An Animated Information Visualisation for Microarray Time-course Data. BMC Bioinformatics, 6, P8. https://doi.org/10.1186/1471-2105-6-S3-P8

Microarray technologies are a relatively new development that allow biologists to monitor the activity of thousands of genes (normally around 8,000) in parallel across multiple stages of a biological process. While this new perspective on biological... Read More about Time-series Explorer: An Animated Information Visualisation for Microarray Time-course Data.

Extending taxonomic visualisation to incorporate synonymy and structural markers. (2005)
Journal Article
Graham, M., & Kennedy, J. (2005). Extending taxonomic visualisation to incorporate synonymy and structural markers. Information Visualization, 4, 206-223. https://doi.org/10.1057/palgrave.ivs.9500096

The visualisation of taxonomic hierarchies has evolved from indented lists of names to techniques that can display thousands of nodes and onto hundreds of thousands of nodes over multiple taxonomies. However, challenges remain within multiple hierarc... Read More about Extending taxonomic visualisation to incorporate synonymy and structural markers..

Coordinated graph and scatter-plot views for the visual exploration of microarray time-series data (2003)
Conference Proceeding
Craig, P., & Kennedy, J. (2003). Coordinated graph and scatter-plot views for the visual exploration of microarray time-series data. In IEEE Symposium on Information Visualization (173-180). https://doi.org/10.1109/infvis.2003.1249023

Microarrays are a relatively new, high-throughput data acquisition technology for investigating biological phenomena at the micro-level. The product of microarray experiments is large-scale time-series data, which subject to proper analysis has the p...

Implementation of the Prometheus Taxonomic Model: a comparison of database models and query languages and an introduction to the Prometheus Object-Oriented Model. (2002)
Journal Article
Raguenaud, C., Pullan, M. R., Watson, M. F., Kennedy, J., Newman, M. F., & Barclay, P. J. (2002). Implementation of the Prometheus Taxonomic Model: a comparison of database models and query languages and an introduction to the Prometheus Object-Oriented Model. Taxon, 51(1), 131-142. https://doi.org/10.2307/1554970

Types of databases commonly used for handling taxonomic data are compared. It is shown that none of the existing types of databases fully support the requirements of taxonomic data. The results of this comparison provide a rationale for the design an...
