A blog with news and curiosity on genomics subjects with a particular interest for topics related to Next Generation Sequencing, Personal Genomics and Bioinformatics. We work at the University of Brescia (Italy) and are new in the field but with a lot of energy to share.
This seems a really good browser to visualize data from NGS. It can visualize the millions of reads produced by your sequencer as well as an entire genome aligned to your reference. Citing the authors: "GenomeView is unique in its capability to interactively handle huge data sets consisting of tens of aligned genomes, thousands of annotation features and millions of mapped short reads both as viewer and editor." Even more GenomeView is freely available as an open source software package.
Sharing effort in target capturing is a really promising solution to reduce the costs of target enrichment, that are emerging as a real bottleneck in most NGS applications. Again lets talk the authors: "In total, this resource provides 92.1% in silicocoverage of the human genome. The online server allows researchers to download a complete repository of oligonucleotide probes and design customized capture assays to target multiple regions throughout the human genome."
