Request Concerning Use of Color in Presentation Materials

Around 5% of Japanese men(3 million people)and 8% of Caucasian men have a specific type of vision that makes it difficult to distinguish between colors in a particular range, including red and green. In light of this, you are requested to take the following points into account when preparing presentation materials.

  1. Images of two-color staining or DNA chips should be displayed in green and magenta, not red and green.
  2. Three or more stains should not be displayed only as composites with all three colors, but also with the two most important colors alone shown in green and magenta(. Alternatively, images of each channel can be displayed separately.)
  3. In graphs and explanatory figures, it is extremely difficult to match colors shown in two separate places. For this reason, do not use only color-coded descriptions or legends for different items, but write them directly into figures.
    Do not differentiate between items by using different colors, but rather with different types of line, shapes/symbol, or types of hatching.
  4. On a dark background, use white, yellow, or orange lettering as far as possible.
