Abstract: Scientific concepts related to genomics and epigenetics can be abstract and are mostly invisible to the human eye. Communication of these concepts to a lay audience is particularly challenging. Visualizing DNA and associated molecules via an embodied experience offers the user an opportunity to interact with this scientific data in a more meaningful way. This project explores new ways to visualize and represent the major molecular players in genomics and epigenetics using virtual reality via portable head mounted displays.
