Taubman Health Sciences Library

The Taubman Health Sciences Library can help with your health-related data visualization needs.  We can connect you to the right people, help you access the appropriate health data, direct you to the right resources, and provide instruction for certain resources.  For example, Marci Brandenburg, the Bioinformationist, is extremely knowledgeable in using Cytoscape, an open source network visualization software, to visualize interactions between genes, proteins, and/or compounds.

THL is home to an Anatomage Table, an anatomy visualization system that is terrific for anatomy education.  It includes an all-in-one touch-interactive display system that includes true human anatomy in a life-size scale.  This table is available for public use and can be reserved.  For more information, please visit THL’s Anatomage webpage.
