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.
