Draft Protype for Visualization of phylogenetic data
- Design prototype
I have created a PowerPoint version of the draft prototype for visualizing phylogenetic data.PPT link (right click and save). You are welcome to download the powerpoint file and add your comments or suggestions or ideas.
- To build a web-based application that provides tools for visualization and manipulation of phylogenetic trees obtained using PhyloWS service.
- Scope & Requirements
- The visualization system will handle only the trees in phylogenetic data. Later it should be extended for the characters data.
- The system should be able to read Web services (PhyloWS)
- The system should handle NeXML and display the phylogenetic trees it in the first version.
- The tree should be drawn using the <Canvas> tag (firefox) and VML for IE in the first version and should support image-based manipulation of
trees later(the image and imagemaps should be generated from the web service??).
- System should provide options to manipulate plotting properties (vertical spacing, line width, tree display type)
- System should provide Options to control features to be displayed (meta data of the tree or node)
- System should provide simple animations on the nodes (optional)
- System should process trees with 50 OTUs in less than 1 second in my MacBookPro (2GB RAM and 2.4Ghz Intel dual core).
- NeXML file
- PhyloWS url
- Newick Tree string
One of the following outputs
- A phylogenetic tree drawn using the <canvas> tag and clickable Popup-panel to manage, query or manipulate node properties
- A phylogenetic tree image with the clickable Popup-panel to manage,query or manipulate node properties
- Programming language & Packages
- Google web Toolkit
