My name is Thomas Fester. As a scientist I have been working on interactions of plant roots with soil microbes for a number of years (website). This blog, however, is dedicated to a broader view of science and to my interest in graphics (website). My posts will cover various attempts to visualize scientific concepts. You may judge yourself, how this works out. Since I have just finished an approach for the visualization of genome data (website), I will start with a category about “genes and genomes”. As time passes, other categories will be added.
