“Deregulation scores” of hundreds of brain tumor patients: Each row corresponds to a pathway (that is, a biochemical process), and each column to a sample taken from a patient. Every colored spot stands for a number – the value of the “deregulation score” of the corresponding pathway, as determined for a particular patient. Dark blue stands for the activity of the pathway in normal brain tissue, whereas dark red indicates a high level of deviation from normal behavior. The clearly distinct group of normal b

Associations between bacterial species in the gut microbiota of “humanized” mice. A spring graph in which nodes correspond to significant relationships between “species”-level, and edges correspond to the top 300 nonlinear relationships. Node size is proportional to the number of these relationships between species relationships, black edges represent relationships explained by diet, and node glow color is proportional to the fraction of adjacent edges that are black (100% is red, 0% is blue)
