New GWA viewer
Genome-wide association studies (GWA/GWAS) generate a lot of data that needs to be viewed and analyzed. There are some software tools out there to do that, including UCSC’s Genome Graphs.
I haven’t looked at it in detail yet, but this new downloadable, java viewer was recently developed and reported in Bioinformatics: AssociationViewer (download here). I’m passing it on to you. As I said, haven’t had a chance to give it a test drive, but as the title of the article states, it’s a ” scalable and integrated software tool for visualization of large-scale variation data in genomic context.” At first glance, it looks interesting.
