Analysis of RNAseq datasets from a comparative infectious disease zebrafish model using GeneTiles bioinformatics

PMCID: 4325186
PMID: 25503064
DOI: 10.1007/s00251-014-0820-3

[…] inson et al. ), that shows the data solely along a line representing the genome, thereby requiring zooming in to view the aligned reads. IGV and many other open source visualisation programs, such as MapView (Bao et al. ), Tablet (Milne et al. ), GenoViewer (Laczik et al. ) and BamView (Carver et al. ), also require the user to scroll or manually search for other genes to bring these into focus; a […]


Chromatin accessibility: a window into the genome

PMCID: 4253006
PMID: 25473421
DOI: 10.1186/1756-8935-7-33

[…] izes that depicts a five to six nucleosomal array along with ten bp periodicity of insert sizes.A number of publicly available stand-alone genome browser tools [], including Artemis [], EagleView [], MapView [], Tablet [], Savant [], and Apollo [], can be used to visualize raw tag density profiles (and enriched genomic regions, see below) in relation to available annotation tracks. The University […]


AmalgamScope: Merging Annotations Data across the Human Genome

Biomed Res Int
PMCID: 4055292
PMID: 24967409
DOI: 10.1155/2014/893501

[…] for specific species or data types. Recently produced visualization software mostly explore next-generation sequencing (NGS) data alongside extra annotation from a reference genome, for instance, the MapView [], the interactive GenomeView [], AnyExpress [], and the MGAViewer [] software which offers visualization options in metagenomics studies. Representative examples of tools that focus on mergi […]


Sequence and expression analysis of gaps in human chromosome 20

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 3413113
PMID: 22510267
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gks302

[…] The graphical user interface MapView (), Cisgenome () and/or the genome browser at UCSC () were used to visualize short-read data for each of the gap regions at nucleotide level, using high-throughput MRE-Seq MBD-Seq, ChIP-Seq, R […]


Uncovering the Complexity of Transcriptomes with RNA Seq

PMCID: 2896904
PMID: 20625424
DOI: 10.1155/2010/853916

[…] ple) such as UCSC Genome Browser [] ( or the Integrative Genomics Viewer (IGV) (, or on specifically devoted browsers such as EagleView [], MapView [] or Tablet [], that can provide some highly informative views of the results at different levels of aggregations. Such tools allow to incorporate the obtained alignment with database annotat […]
