JBrowse 1.12.1 – JavaScript Genome Browser

 JBrowse 1.12.1

:: DESCRIPTION

JBrowse is a JavaScript genome browser with an emphasis on portability. JBrowse helps preserve the user’s sense of location by avoiding discontinuous transitions, instead offering smoothly animated panning, zooming, navigation, and track selection. Unlike most existing genome browsers, where the genome is rendered into images on the webserver and the role of the client is restricted to displaying those images, JBrowse distributes work between the server and client and therefore uses significantly less server overhead than previous genome browsers.
