“This award is given to the first author of the paper at the meeting that best exemplifies the application of informatics methods to the elucidation of basic molecular biology processes that are relevant to the conquest of human disease. The paper describes a novel interactive tool for data visualization of Genomic, Pathomic and Radiomic data integrated to patient outcomes and demographics.
