Visualizing 10 years of Ensembl

This one is for those of you who are interested data visualization and the development of the Ensembl genome browser, which celebrated its 10th birthday this year.

The video below shows a visualization of ten years of CVS commits from all the developers involved in getting Ensembl to where it is today. It was produced using gource. It reminds me of those high-speed videos of spiders spinning webs.

Thanks to Guy Coates for letting us use the video here.

If you’re more UX than biology, then you might like to know what the heck a genome is… !
