HilbertVis 2.14 – Visualization of Genomic data with the Hilbert curve

HilbertVis 2.14


HilbertVis allows to display very long data vectors in a space-efficient manner, allowing the user to visually judge the large scale structure and distribution of features simultaenously with the rough shape and intensity of individual features. A typical use case is ChIP-Chip and ChIP-Seq, or basically all the kinds of genomic data, that are conventionally displayed as quantitative track (“wiggle data”) in genome browsers such as those provided by Ensemble or UCSC.
