2D scatter (XY plot ) is quite useful when you want to compare paired data series. For instance you can make a Volcano or MA plot to visualise differentially expressed genes from RNAseq analysis, to visualise correlations between two samples, or to visualise sample distances via Princinple Component Analysis (PCA), or simply to make a standard curve.
An extra feature provided here is that you can link any data point to an external resource, for instance to link the gene in the volcano plot to databases containing information about that gene (for instance GeneDB or WormBase Parasite, or any other website for your gene id), which saves you a lot of typing effort.
The input data should have three columns (Name, X, Y) separated by single comma, tab, or space.+ Sample data for 2D scatter plot
