• Genome Browsers

    For the past few years, I’ve used IGB as my preferred coverage viewer. I appreciated that it was an open-source project, and I could recommend colleagues to use it since it was an open-source project and it was easy enough to launch a java program on any system. Recently, I switched to IGV since the auto-scaling and data transformation features in IGB were not functioning on bedgraph data. As highlighted by the red circles in the figure, low values are hidden in IGB since the y-axis of the data track does not rescale based upon the viewing window.

  • Hosting on Google Drive

    I originally wanted to host this site completely on Google Drive using the method laid out at: GoogleDriveHosting. This method was appealing because I could depend on Google’s infrastructure for reliability even though I would be restricting myself to client-side scripting (HTML, CSS, and JavaScript). After some experimentation with public Drive folders, I found out that all communication was loaded over https, so I would not be able to link my domain name for security reasons.
