DNA Plant genome visualization

New genomes are being sequenced everyday. Therefore, nowadays, the amount of information keeps growing and only big data analysis allows the visualization of all of this material. However I wanted to give it a twist. I decided to visualize all the complete plant genome sequences showing something characteristic of each specimen (a leaf, a fruit, or a flower) with a traditional botanical painting, vintage style.

My source of information was Phytozome v11, which comprises a hub for plant genomes and gene family and data analysis. This painting includes 64 different plant specimens ranging from pineapple and grape to Arabidopsis and Volvox.

I hope you enjoy this old school painting that represents new data.
