Interactive Data Visualization Tool Connects Scientists Worldwide with Vital COVID-19 Research Data

An interactive data visualization tool connecting scientists with critical research while they work towards a cure for COVID-19 could quicken the pace of vital global scientific collaboration amidst the pandemic.

The tool for advanced data visualization on a series of scientific papers has been developed by Zoic Labs LLC (Dr. Culver City, CA, USA) which has implemented rich visual interactivity to allow global scientists dynamic ways to visually connect with the research. The innovative visualization and collaboration tool allows scientists around the world to share their findings and characterizes critical connections between the 27 SARS-CoV-2 proteins and the 332 human genes they interact with, lending a wealth of information about each gathered through research. The tool also provides in-depth knowledge about all current drug interactions and their statuses, and links to external sources for additional information about the virus proteins.

Zoic Labs has incorporated three additional disparate data sets to the existing map, which enabled interactively sharing information across five data sets. The new research characterizes the differences between normal SARS-CoV-2 infected cell signaling and phosphorylation dynamics, allowing a better understanding of the cellular pathways the virus needs to survive. Coupled with its SARS-CoV-2 protein-protein-interaction network, Zoic Labs’ visualization tool could be helpful in understanding the virus on a molecular level.
