What's New

September 2014. The IGV iPad app can now be installed from the Apple App Store. IGV for iPad is a lightweight genomic data viewer that provides some of the functionality available in our regular desktop IGV. See the IGV for iPad documentation for details.


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.
