A two-variable heatmap with two-sided marginals and mouseover. Heatmaps are used all over the pace, but in the field of Metagenomics Bubble Plots are popular for displaying the functional information of a microbial community (a loose convention). This work was heavily inspired heavily by the Les Misérable Co-occurence example designed by Mike Bostock. Marginals distributions are automatically calculated on the input csv-matrix.
Being displayed is a functioal screen of the Carbohydrate-Active enZYmes Database (CAZy), a collection of genes and proteins associated with the degradation of various complex carbohydrate sugars. Of particular interest from a material and chemical development perspective is the degradation of Lignin and Cellulose, two of the most abundant polymers
