Martin Krzywinski is known for his work in bioinformatics, data visualization, information design and the intersection of art and science. He created the Circos graph to display genomic data sets in a way that revealed their inner structure and served as a visually stunning emblem of the new field. His information graphics have appeared in the New York Times, Wired, Scientific American and covers of numerous books and scientific journals. Krzywinski’s work has set a new standard for the presentation of scientific results and established design as a tool of discovery in the research process itself. He is a monthly contributor to Nature Method’s Points of View and Points of Significance columns and the former owner of the world’s most popular rat.
