Everything you need in a genome browser
The Integrated Genome Browser (IGB) is an open-source tool for visualizing genome-scale datasets.
IGB is designed for both biologists and bioinformaticians, and is used by thousands of researchers
at hundreds of universities around the world. Find out how IGB can help push your research forward with its many features,
ease of use, and wealth of support documentation.

Display your own data
View data from aligned sequences, annotations, and more (BAM, BED, GFF3). Overlap multiple datasets and customize each track's color. Or make a heatmap of the data.
Load any genome
IGB provides access to many genomes via IGB Quickloads. You can also view your own custom genomes.
Make and view graphs
Make, customize, and save graphs from your data. Use depth graphs to show coverage, or mismatch graphs to count differences between your data and a reference. IGB can view many graph types, including BEDGRAPH and Wiggle.
Build an IGB QuickLoad to share data between collaborators. Store your data in the cloud to provide access to everyone involved in the project. Or share analysis results using Bookmarks.
Develop and enable Plug-ins
Select and install Plug-ins through the IGB App Manager to add additional functionality. You can also make your own plug-ins/apps and share them with the IGB community.
