Shiny apps - Molecular Cytology / LCAM

Introduction

On this page you will find the links (just click on the image) for a number of web-based #DataViz tools (Shiny apps) with a short description. More information on the purpose of the app can be found in the "about" tab after running the tool. Some more information can be found at the bottom of this page.

PlotsOfData

PlotsOfData visualizes (unpaired) data for different conditions together with a choice of statistical summaries. Also, a customizable output table with statistics is generated. The importance of depicting the actual data (instead of summaries only) is discussed in this blog

PlotTwist

PlotTwist was developed for visualizing data from time-lapse imaging but can be used for any type of continuous data. It features several visualizations, including the small multiple and heatmap. See also this blog

PlotsOfDifferences

PlotsOfDifferences is an extension of PlotsOfData that plots the differences between the mean or meidan of (several) conditions and the mean or median of a selected reference condition. The difference is a type of effect size and has some advantages over null-hypothesis tests for comparison of samples, see this blog

General Information

The web-based tools were developed to facilitate data visualization and are broadly applicable. Use of the applications should be intuitive and straightforward with the example data that is included. You can use your own data via upload (csv or excel format) or by copy-paste.
Note: We have no means of reading or storing your data. For full security the apps can be stored and operated locally. In order to use these tools offline/locally, you can get the code from GitHub and run the shiny apps from Rstudio.
Sharing your plots/experiences via twitter (or e-mail) is appreciated. Should you have any questions, feature requests or feedback please contact me:
