Visualizing Scientific Promiscuity

Scientific papers are rarely written by a single person. Usually many authors come together to work on a specific issue. This visualization uses data obtained from Pubmed to show collaboration between authors.

Actual photography of the printed article in the British Journal of Addiction 1956
During withdrawal the addict is acutely aware of his surroundings. Sense impressions are sharpened to the point of hallucination. Familiar objects seem to stir with a writhing furtive life. The addict is subject to a barrage of sensations external and visceral. He may experience flashes of beauty and nostalgia, but the overall impression is extremely painful

A visualization of transcription changes in a subset of genes related to cell cycle regulation.

It displays the effect of WNT signaling on cell cycle regulation in cardiac progenitor cells. On the left cells with scramble-short hairpin (sh)RNA on the right with shRNA targeting IGFBP3.

The visualization  shows the clear dependency of the cell cycle response on IGFBP3 - if it is missing (right) the response is abolished.

Although I find the visualization quite clear cut it didn't make it into the final paper. Rather two graphs were used that in comparison tell the same story (Figure 3 F and G).

"This text for a 1964 ad in the Detroit Art Directors Annual became our mantra. This, by the way, is a type proof, something you don’t see anymore. Needless to say the word 'hack' caused quite a bit of consternation at the time."
