These visualisations were built using R and Shiny, here's a basic overview of what Shiny is.
Dr. Philippa Matthews approached the IT Research Suppot team for advice in how an interactive database of hepitopes could be developed such that it could be cited in a paper and continue to be updated as more data is collected. A Shiny app connected to a versionable data deposit on Figshare proved to be an excellent fit for this use case.
The Shiny app makes use of the following visualisations:
- Interactive tables - useful for interactively exploring datasets.
To replicate this interactive visualisation for yourself, refer to the IDN Shiny app template or else fork the actual code for the shiny app here. You an also contact the IDN on firstname.lastname@example.org
