ngsplot 2.63

ngs.plot is a program that allows you to easily visualize your next-generation sequencing (NGS) samples at functional genomic regions.

The signature advantage of ngs.plot is that it collects a large database of functional elements for many genomes. A user can ask for a functionally important region to be displayed in one command. It handles large sequencing data efficiently and has only modest memory requirement. ngs.plot is also easy to use. A user only needs to create a very small text file called configuration, telling the program which samples to look at and how they should be combined with different regions, and then run the program with one command.

To load the module:

$ module load apps/ngsplot/2.63

Accessing Previous Versions

Wherever possible, previous versions of this application will be retained for continuity, especially for research projects that require a consistent version of the software throughout the project. Such versions, however, may be unsupported by IT Services or the applications vendor, and may be withdrawn at short or no notice if they can no longer run on the cluster - for example, essential operating system upgrades may be incompatible with old versions.

At present there are no previous versions of this application on the BlueBEAR service.
