Repeated divergent selection on pigmentation genes in a rapid finch radiation

Sci Adv
PMCID: 5443641
PMID: 28560331
DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.1602404

[…] ssembly (Taeniopygia_guttata-3.2.4) using the Satsuma synteny module from the Satsuma version 3.1 pipeline (). We assigned the scaffold to the chromosome with the top hit and inspected the results in MizBee (). […]


Characterization of fossilized relatives of the White Spot Syndrome Virus in genomes of decapod crustaceans

BMC Evol Biol
PMCID: 4506587
PMID: 26187050
DOI: 10.1186/s12862-015-0380-7

[…] Synteny analysis was based on the comparison of the positions of the annotated genes in the Metopaulias scaffolds of viral origin and their orthologs in the WSSV genome, and visualized in the program MizBee []. To avoid interference of potential mis-assembly, scaffold III was conservatively broken at the low-coverage region (see “” in Results) and at two locations with insertions of large interspe […]


Comparative Mapping of the Wild Perennial Glycine latifolia and Soybean (G. max) Reveals Extensive Chromosome Rearrangements in the Genus Glycine

PLoS One
PMCID: 4061007
PMID: 24937645
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0099427
call_split See protocol

[…] . vulgaris chromosomes, G. latifolia SNP-containing sequences and G. max gene models were aligned to P. vulgaris chromosomes (http://www.phytozome.net/commonbean.php) using BLAST and visualized with MizBee . When G. latifolia sequences aligned at more than one location, the most syntenic location was chosen for these analyses. […]


What google maps can do for biomedical data dissemination: examples and a design study

BMC Res Notes
PMCID: 3658873
PMID: 23642009
DOI: 10.1186/1756-0500-6-179

[…] Hierarchical Clustering Explorer (HCE) [], and Spotfire [], systems for pathway and network analysis like Cytoscape [], VisANT [], Ingenuity [] and Patika [], or genome viewers such as Cinteny [] and Mizbee []. Most such systems are aimed at complex data exploration and analysis and have associated overhead costs such as deploying, learning and operating the systems, data formatting, and adjusting […]


Visualizing time related data in biology, a review

Brief Bioinform
PMCID: 4171679
PMID: 23585583
DOI: 10.1093/bib/bbt021

[…] t of the time component []. Colouring of conserved amino acids in the former case, and dendograms, in the latter, are the classical depictions for this kind of data. Tools like Circos [], Vista [] or MizBee [] extend this analysis to whole-genome level, enabling tracking of genome evolution by highlighting sequence and structural variation features or comparative genomics by aligning genomes of di […]


An eQTL biological data visualization challenge and approaches from the visualization community

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 3355334
PMID: 22607587
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-13-S8-S8

[…] effect of each SNP on each RNA expression level, ordered by genomic locus, and superimposed with the difference in allele frequency between affected and unaffected individuals, as well as a Circos []/Mizbee [] inspired circular display of two locus interactions. Although the entry identified relatively few of the spiked-in SNPs specifically, it did describe many features of the expression interact […]
