Related genes ideogram is a reusable Ideogram.js web component that recommends interesting genes based on a queried gene.
Related genes can be A) interacting genes, i.e. immediately adjacent in a biochemical pathway; or B) paralogous genes, which are closely evolutionarily related to the queried gene. Design considerations like compactness, domain illustrations, and interactivity are summarized. The new "paralog neighborhood" feature is also previewed.
Delivered as a 5-minute "lightning talk" at a remote session of the Design Affinity Group of the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, the talk elicited excitement and positive feedback among designers and biologists.
