Summary: Visualisation software for next-generation genomics


Integrated Genome Browser is a highly interactive, open source desktop genome viewer implemented in Java that can display short read alignments output from BowTie and TopHat, output from the blat EST alignment program (PSL), BED files from the UCSC Table Browser, and many variations on GFF. IGB also can display data from tiling array experiments. IGB was first developed at Affymetrix and released in 2003, but since 2008 has been developed and supported by the Loraine Lab at UNC Charlotte together with a growing community of developers. IGB is open source and free. To download IGB, view screencasts, or read documentation, visit
