Gaggle Genome Browser: The Google Map of Genomics

 :: Posted by American Biotechnologist on 09-07-2010

Advances in next gen sequencing has been accompanied by an onslaught of genomic data which has in-turn required new tools for processing and navigating very large data sets. The gaggle genome browser was developed by the Baglia lab at the Institute for Systems Biology in Seattle, Washington. The browser allows for users to navigate through available genomic data from a variety of organisms. The tool is very user friendly and has cursor functions similar to google maps (in fact, you might think of the genome browser as the genomic version of google maps).

Below is a brief introduction to the gaggle genome browser by Mary from the OpenHelix blog.
