THE PROBLEM

What if our set of classified organisms is VERY VERY BIG?

WHAT DO THEY HAVE IN COMMON?

  • Try to visualize pure DNA comparison
  • Most of them are static approaches
  • Very technical solutions, non biologists have problems understanding the solutions
  • Non-generic approaches
  • When comparing multiple results (unclassified organisms) they have limitations

OUR PROPOSAL

  • Visualize taxonomy similarities and scores
  • Interactive
  • Solutions for all public
  • Generic approach
  • Allows multiple results comparison (multiple unclassified organisms)
