StratomeX: Enabling Visualization-Driven Cancer Subtype Analysis

Many types of cancers are known to have subtypes that derive from common biomolecular alterations. Identifying and characterizing these subtypes is important, since knowledge about the alterations in these subtypes can have serious implications on the treatment and prognosis of patients. The lack of appropriate tools, however, makes the complex process of analyzing subtypes a tedious endeavor. We present StratomeX, an application that supports analysts in identifying and characterizing cancer subtypes using interactive visualizations. StratomeX was first published at EuroVis 2012, but we expect that the BioVis community can benefit from learning about this extensible open source system.
