CanvasXpress was developed as the core visualization component for bioinformatics and systems biology analysis at Bristol-Myers Squibb. It supports a large number of visualizations to display scientific and non-scientific data. CanvasXpress also includes a standalone unobtrusive data table and a filtering widget to allow data exploration similar to those only seen in other high-end commercial applications. Data can be easily sorted, grouped, transposed, transformed or clustered dynamically. The fully customizable mouse events as well as the zooming, panning and drag’n drop capabilities are features that make this library unique in its class.
