Default Introducing Savant: Genome Browser for HTS Datasets

We are excited to announce the release of Savant, the Sequence Annotation Visualization and ANalysis Tool, a new genome browser which combines visualization of HTS and other genome-based data with powerful analytic tools. Savant is designed to be easy to use, to support files of various formats and sizes, to be fast and memory efficient, and most importantly, to be extensible. Savant has a bookmarking component that allows users to quickly navigate among regions of interest, a Table View that provides a textual view of the visualized data, and novel visualization modes that make the interpretation of genomic information (e.g. paired-end relationships) easier. Finally, the plugin framework of Savant exposes a rich library of functions (e.g. for retrieving data, setting the range, manipulating the UI) which developers can use to create, for example, custom on-the-fly computational analyses. Plugins can be shared through the Savant website, creating an environment through which developers can deploy analytic tools and users can create customized workflows.

For more information and to download Savant, visit http://compbio.cs.toronto.edu/savant/.

If you need any help with Savant, please contact the Development Team by email to savant [at] cs [dot] toronto [dot] edu.
