Summary

Rapid advances in high-throughput sequencing technologies have enabled more efficient acquisition of massive amount of multi-omics data. However, interpretation of the underlying relationships across multi-omics networks has not been fully succeeded, partly due to the lack of effective methods in visualization. To aid interpretation of the results from such multi-omics data, we here present Grimon (Graphical interface to visualize multi-omics networks), an R package that visualizes high-dimensional multi-layered data sets in three-dimensional parallel coordinates. Grimon enables users to intuitively and interactively explore their analyzed data, helping their understanding of multiple inter-layer connections embedded in high-dimensional complex data.

Availability and implementation

Grimon is freely available at https://github.com/mkanai/grimon as an R package with example omics data sets.
