If you must use a table

On posters, graphs are better than tables. There is not much that can be presented in a table that cannot be presented in a graph.

If you feel you must use a table for some reason, check these tips at In the Haystack.

Like me, author Boris Gorelik is fond of rules of two.

Would love to see good examples of displaying correlation and regression data. I don't think graphs get the job done in this case.

Genomics data. And there is SOOOO much of it. Back in the old days you would have made a whole poster about the data in one row of the table.
