It's becoming increasingly challenging to efficiently visualize and extract useful insight from complex and big data sets. JavaScript stands out as a suitable programming choice that offers mature libraries, easy implementation, and extensive customization, all of which stay in the shadow of new and rapid developments in the language. To illustrate the use of JavaScript in a scientific context, this article elaborates on Lexicon, a collection of JavaScript libraries for generating interactive visualizations in bioinformatics and other custom libraries.
