Caryoscope 0.4.0 – View Gene Expression Data in Genome

Caryoscope 0.4.0


Caryoscope is  an application  for viewing gene expression data in a whole-genome context. Caryoscope has been used to “draw” microarray data onto a set of chromosomes so that changes in DNA copy number can identify regions of chromosome loss or duplication within the genome of tumor cells (Nat Genet. 1999 Sep;23(1):41-6). In addition, microarray data measuring mRNA expression levels can also be visualized in a genomic context using Caryoscope (PNAS 2002 Dec 10;99(25):16144-9). Data viewed with Caryscope need not be limited to microarray data — any type of numerical data that can be represented as a function of genomic position can be visualized using Caryoscope.
