IDV Alumns Lia Petronio and Andrew Tang designed an interactive visualization for Cell Journal, which was featured on the cover of their 10th-anniversary issue. The visualization focuses on the recent research under the theme of tracing the lineage of individual cells. The authors note: “Using Scopus it illustrates both the evolution of the stem cell field and the way new research builds on work that came before. Users can navigate the graphic and the represented papers by stem cell type, organism, and author.” The visualization can be explored on the Journal’s website:
