I have gone through the sequencing process three times, to do my genotype, my exome and my microbiome. As technologies evolve and new nuances are gained by the new improvements, sometimes it becomes necessary to repeat the sequencing. This made me think about statements that I have heard […]
CircosVCF is a web based visualisation tool of genome-wide variant data described in VCF files using circos plots. The provided visualisation capabilities, give an overview of the genomic relationship between genomes, and the integration of additional information such as experimental data or annotations. I am very glad they are using […]
