Dash components for bioinformatics
Dash Bio is a suite of bioinformatics components built to work with Dash.
The Dash Bio components each fall into one of three categories:
- Custom chart types
- Sequence analysis tools
- 3D rendering tools
Custom chart types
- Dash Circos
- Dash Clustergram
- Dash Manhattan Plot
- Dash Needle Plot
- Dash Volcano Plot
Sequence analysis tools
- Dash Alignment Chart
- Dash Onco Print
- Dash Forna Container
- Dash Sequence Viewer
- Dash Mol2D
- Dash Mol3D
- Dash Speck
- Dash Ngl
Using Dash Bio
It's easy to add a fully interactive chromosomal, molecular or genomic visualization to your Dash app by simply including the Dash Bio component into your app layout as follows:
import urllib.request as urlreq from dash import Dash, html import dash_bio as dashbio app = Dash(__name__) data = urlreq.urlopen( 'https://raw.githubusercontent.com/plotly/dash-bio-docs-files/master/alignment_viewer_p53.fasta' ).read().decode('utf-8') app.layout = html.Div([ dashbio.AlignmentChart( id='my-default-alignment-viewer', data=data ) ]) if __name__ == '__main__': app.run_server(debug=True)
See the Dash Bio documentation for more components and examples.
Run Dash Bio in a JupyterLab environment
Create a virtual environment:
The following steps require a virtual environment tool to be installed on your computer:
pip install virtualenv
a. On macOS and Linux:
python3 -m venv env
b. On Windows, enter:
py -m venv env
Activate your new environment:
a. On macOS and Linux, enter:
b. On Windows, enter:
Install required libraries (make sure you have pip installed with
pip install dash dash-bio pandas numpy Jupyterlab
To run Dash inside Jupyter lab:
a. Install jupyter-dash:
pip install jupyter-dash
jupyter lab build
(Note: This step requires Node.js and NPM installed on yourcomputer. To check if Node and NPM are installed, enter
npm -vin your terminal. For install instructions see nodejs.org.
To display Plotly figures in JupyterLab:
pip install jupyterlab "ipywidgets>=7.5” jupyter labextension install email@example.com
Start JupyterLab by typing:
Important: JupyterLab must be run within the virtual environment that was previously activated.
