    Ting Wang reviews the state-of-the-art in visualization systems for browsing genomes, and discusses emerging challenges with next-generation genomics sequences. He empathizes the emerging importance of visualizing genomes with other types of data (e.g., epigenetics data), and he illustrates the case of the UCSC Cancer Genomics Browser, which he co-invented. This talk was part of VIZBI 2010, the EMBO workshop on visualizing biological data (http://vizbi.org). This video has been filmed and distributed with permission under a creative common license.

      A timelapse video of me at work on a commissioned painting for the Jeff Hansen of Colorado State University's Chromatin Research Lab. In my voiceover, I discuss the scientific basis for and artistic techniques work in this piece. This video was filmed at Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom in Denver, CO on 28 November 2009 for the Mile High Sound Throwdown (myspace.com/projectaspect) on a Canon SD1100 IS.

              What does it mean to be human? Philosophers, theologians and scientists have pondered this question for thousands of years. For most of that time we’ve thought our species was unique.
