Genomic study is fairly novel. Typical research processes are not established yet. Many new discoveries are happening in this area all the time. Are current methods of visualizations effective? What works well? What could be improved? These are some of the questions we are interested in evaluating for two graphical tools used to compare nucleotide sequences. Scatter plots and parallel coordinate-like visuals have been used in genomics for identifying similarities in genetic code. Our preliminary evaluation focuses on determining the aspects of the two visualizations that are successful and those that need enhancements.
