(i) DESeq is a Bioconductor package for analysis of RNA-Seq data that we developed and which became one of the most widely used tools for this purpose. The history of this project offers some useful lessons on how to design, author, publish, disseminate and advertise bioinformatics software with impact, i.e, such that it finds wide use by the research community.

(ii) Recently, I directed the focus of my research on interactive visualization tools for high-dimensional data. Our platform of choice is D3, a data visualization library written in Javascript. I will give a short overview of its library and show how we used it.
