We are seeing a lot of interest in visualizing GWAS data lately. We cover this a bit in our UCSC Genome Browser tutorial. And we recently did a pretty popular post on a quick look at the NHGRI GWAS catalog data using the UCSC Genome Graphs tool.
But as I was looking at the HapMap tools again recently, I noticed that they have a tool for this as well. So today’s tip examines that tool for visualizing the NHGRI GWAS catalog data, and having a look at the GBrowse view of this data in genomic regions with the HapMap context. In this movie I load up one of the sample data sets and move from that GWAS karyogram visualization to the HapMap GBrowse view. Click the image to view the movie.
