Enhanced JBrowse plugins for epigenomics data visualization

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 5921565
PMID: 29699480
DOI: 10.1186/s12859-018-2160-z

[…] aphical tools such as genome browsers are able to properly visualize these specialized data sets. Current genome browsers such as UCSC genome browser [], AnnoJ [], IGV [], WashU EpiGenome Browser [], Epiviz [], IGB [], and JBrowse [], have limited capability to visualize these data sets effectively, hindering the visualization and potential discoveries with new sequencing technologies. JBrowse is […]


Metaviz: interactive statistical and visual analysis of metagenomic data

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 5887897
PMID: 29529268
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gky136
call_split See protocol

[…] ata visualization. Given the structure of metagenomic data, the user navigation tools and the database storage are tailored to taxonomic hierarchies. We moved from a relational database model used in Epiviz (), our previous interactive data analysis tool for functional genomic data such as gene expression and methylation data, to a graph database to manage the feature hierarchy and abundance count […]


C State: an interactive web app for simultaneous multi gene visualization and comparative epigenetic pattern search

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 5606219
PMID: 28929968
DOI: 10.1186/s12859-017-1786-6

[…] AVIS [], which links to the UCSC browser and uses a chromosome-centric approach. Complete ChIP-seq analysis packages like CisGenome [] and recently developed visualization tools such as VisPIG [] and Epiviz [] offer options for peak visualization but cannot directly screen and display user-defined patterns across multiple loci. Another challenge faced by biologists is that many of the current tool […]


Visual analytics of geo social interaction patterns for epidemic control

PMCID: 4980799
PMID: 27510908
DOI: 10.1186/s12942-016-0059-3

[…] ameters in the Table . The tool can be applied to study other emerging infectious diseases (e.g., measles) directly with the input of their corresponding parameters.In terms of control strategies, GS-EpiViz allows users to design four vaccination strategies: random-based, degree-based, betweenness-based, and strength-based vaccination strategies; these are selected because they are the most typica […]


Public data and open source tools for multi assay genomic investigation of disease

Brief Bioinform
PMCID: 4945830
PMID: 26463000
DOI: 10.1093/bib/bbv080

[…] y enables inspection of specific cancer genomic loci or the general overview of genomic alterations, the exploration of cause–effect relationships between various alteration types. Most recently, the Epiviz genome browser [] provides both a web-based interface and full integration with Bioconductor and its core data classes through the ‘Epivizr' package. Visualization tools tied to genomic coordin […]
