NGV 0.1 – Browser for Efficient Display of Large HTS Data Sets

NGV 0.1


NGV (Next Generation Viewer) is a Preprocessor and Browser for efficient display of large HTS Data Sets. In a preprocessing step, NGV takes a genomic sequence and a file containing mapped reads as input and creates several indices. This preprocessing step is easily extendable by a plug-in mechanism. Preprocessed data sets can then be loaded and visualized efficiently: NGV provides several information visualizations (coverage histogram, coverage overviews, detail view). It makes use of interval tree-based indices to efficiently visualize large HTS data sets and enable users to search for regions with a defined minimum coverage as well as for mismatches between consensus and reference sequence.
