Overview

The Integrative Genomics Viewer (IGV) is a high-performance visualization tool for interactive exploration of large, integrated genomic datasets. It supports a wide variety of data types, including array-based and next-generation sequence data, and genomic annotations.

Funding

Development of IGV has been supported by funding from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) of the National Institutes of Health, the Informatics Technology for Cancer Reserarch (ITCR) of the NCI, and the Starr Cancer Consortium.

IGV participates in the GenomeSpace initiative, which is funded by the National Human Genome Research Institute.
