What’s the answer? (visualizing SVs)

BioStar is a site for asking, answering and discussing bioinformatics questions. We are members of thecommunity and find it very useful. Often questions and answers arise at BioStar that are germane to our readers (end users of genomics resources). Every Thursday we will be highlighting one of those questions and answers here in this thread. You can ask questions in this thread, or you can always join in at BioStar.

With the onset of the incredible volumes and complexities of the data bonanza we find ourselves in, I am always interested in the ways people want to see their data. This week’s highlighted question addresses the visualization of structural variation, and some options were offered.

best genome browser to look at structural variation calls

I used multiple structural variant(SV) callers to call SVs for paired end sequencing data.

Which genome browser offers the best support to visually inspect paired en sequencing data. I want to load the mapped paired end sequencing bams and then visually inspect the regions the SV callers marked as having structural variations.


But if you have a favorite strategy that hasn’t been described, do let us know in the answers.
