I would like to get some hints to go about this task. I'd like to design a webpage/site that looks like this.
I have RNA-Seq data with replicates for WT and Mutants and also RPKM expression values. I also wrote an R-script that generates the shape and shades the expression values. Now the part I am not sure of is about the web-design itself, however I'd love to learn to do it. I know basic web-design per-se, just HTML with CSS. But I haven't used scripting and would love to make use of this opportunity to learn it.
Here are some of the questions I have:
1) Does this require java script and/or PHP/MySQL? If so, could you please elaborate it as well.
2) Is it possible to configure to run an R-script based on client-side parameters so that it could be executed on the fly on the cluster and the out pdf/image file returned for display?
3) Is it better to have the files ready and just query the image or to create the required image dynamically as explained in 2) ?
4) If I have left out anything or is unclear or you have other pointers, I'd love to hear them.
Thank you very much!
