ABOUT Visual DNA

Visual DNA is a page with a collection of different applications and links to information that in some way touches DNA in its various forms. The applications developed for Visual DNA are always free to use and they strive to provide full capacity for modern browsers in combination with various components that provide a powerful opportunity to visualize data sets in many different ways.

Some of the techniques used

D3.js is a JavaScript library for manipulating documents based on data. D3 helps you bring data to life using HTML, SVG and CSS. D3’s emphasis on web standards gives you the full capabilities of modern browsers without tying yourself to a proprietary framework, combining powerful visualization components and a data-driven approach to DOM manipulation. Using D3 gives us an opportunity to visualize one data set in many different ways.


Crossfilter is a JavaScript library for exploring large multivariate datasets in the browser. Crossfilter supports extremely fast (<30ms) interaction with coordinated views, even with datasets containing a million or more records.
