Visualizing Biological Data

Problem: 

The improvement of the technical equipment(s) in biology allows for more advanced analysis and visualization methods of biological data.  One challenge was to sequence the human genome. Currently, the researchers have a need to compare thousands of genomes and to understand DNA sequences in the context of many other types of measured biological data. Biologists use visualizations in their everyday workflow to help them explore and understand this massive amount of data.

Aim: 

You should provide a systematic overview of existing approaches in scientific literature to visualize
genomes and DNA sequences in the context of other measured biological data.
