Sequence Variant Tracks Added to JBrowse - June 12, 2019

We are excited to announce that 50 new “Variants” data tracks are now available for use in our genome browsing tool JBrowse. Utilizing whole-genome sequencing data published by Song et al. (2015), these data tracks visualize how the sequences of 25 S. cerevisiae strains differ from that of the reference genome strain, S288C. Two data […]
