Seeing the Forest and the Trees: Visualizing Next-Generation Sequence Data



The Generic Genome Browser (GBrowse) is an free, open source, web-based browser for displaying and navigating genome features.It is part of the Generic Model Organism Database (GMOD) project which aims to provide reusable components for working with genomic data, and is in use by hundreds of institutions around the world.GBrowse is relatively easy to install and can display any type of genome feature, including alignment data from current sequencing technologies after processing with SAMtools, a free and open source tool for working with large sequence alignments.The combination of SAMtools and GBrowse provides an excellent platform for providing extra value to sequencing core lab customers.See:,
