EpiViz: an implementation of Circos plots for epidemiologists

Epidemiology studies predominantly focus on single exposure and single outcome associations. However, biological pathways involve numerous processes and identifying meaningful intermediate associations that can be taken forward for further analysis is complex. This is particularly the case for studies involving metabolomics data, as effects rarely occur in isolation.

Gaining global overview of hundreds of exposure/outcome associations may therefore aid downstream analyses. Visual inspection is one of the main modes of understanding global exposure/outcome associations. EpiViz is a wrapper that makes producing Cricos plots simple and efficient for those new to programming and data visualisation.


Matt Lee is a PhD student at the University of Bristol.
