CanvasXpress (http://canvasxpress.org) was developed as the core visualization component for bioinformatics and systems biology analysis at Bristol-Myers Squibb and further enhanced by scientists around the world and served as a key visualization engine for many popular bioinformatics tools. It offers a rich set of interactive plots to display scientific and genomics data, such as oncoprint of cancer mutations, heatmap, 3D scatter, violin, radar, and profile plots (Figure 1, canvasXpress plots arranged by canvasDesigner https://baohongz.github.io/canvasDesigner). Recently, the reproducibility and usability of the package in real world bioinformatics and clinical use cases have been improved significantly witnessed by continuous add-on features and wide adoption of the toolkit in the scientific communities. Furthermore, It is the first noteworthy package harmonizing real time interactive exploring and analyzing of big data, full-fledged customizing of look-n-feel, and producing multi-panel publication-ready figures in PDF format simultaneously.
