3D animation/visualization of mutations
in large-scale gene networks
Cancer is a disease in which the function of genes is disrupted by mutations. Recent
technological advances allow measurement of all mutation in the DNA of a tumor. In
this way it has been discovered that tumor DNA contains many more mutations in
many more genes than was anticipated. The reason is that genes are organized into
so-called pathways or networks that describe how genes can regulate and interact
with each other.
In this bachelor project you will design and implement a 3D visualization that allows
a biologist or clinician to inspect gene networks along with the mutations that
occurred in the genes. The visualization should enable smooth and easy browsing of
the network and mutation data, much like playing a 3D computer game.
