A multipurpose graphical genome analyzer. It displays tracks for gene structure, gene expression, repeat families, CPG islands, and custom tracks, e.g., RNA-Seq, Chip-Seq, TimEX-Seq, and single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP). It can also generate statttistics for minimum, maximum, SD, and correllation. The tool has Gaussian filter, peak finders, signal saturation, island finders, scatter plots, and bar charts.
