The Edinburgh Mouse Atlas of Gene Expression (EMAGE) publishes the results of gene expression experiments on the mouse embryo. Whilst this resource uses visual mechanisms to display the result of a single experiment, it currently provides no technique for the visual navigation of data. Ideally, a semantic visual navigation mechanism would exist. Our work focuses on trying to understand the requirements for such a mechanism. To this end, a prototype solution (based on sunburst visualisations) is being built. This paper presents the prototype and reports on the initial feedback from users.
