Integrated Genome Browser (IGB)

IGB provides an advanced, highly customizable environment for exploring and analyzing large-scale genomic data sets. Using IGB you can visually analyze RNA-Seq, ChIP-Seq, and many other genomic projects. The best part of all is that IGB can be used to produce publication quality images from genome scale data sets, and is provided FREE.

Good tool to use! Thanks for the information. Just one question, can IGB be integrated into Galaxy?

Hi CikAlal,

Great question! IGB is fully integrated into Galaxy. Once you've generated a file in Galaxy the option to "display in IGB" will appear. Clicking on the link will automatically load the data into IGB (you will need to have IGB running).
