Software

Scientists in the Broad community have developed many critical software tools for the analysis of increasingly large genome-related datasets, and they make these tools openly available to the scientific community. For the conditions governing the use of Broad Institute software, please see the software use agreement associated with the tools you choose to download.

  • Mirador

    Mirador is an open-source tool for visual exploration of complex datasets, enabling users to discover correlation patterns and derive new hypotheses from the data. Mirador's main interface allows to examine scatter, histogram, and eikosogram plots between any pair of variables in the dataset, and to dynamically adjust controlling factors or covariates. Variables can be ranked by their correlation score (based on Mutual Information) with a particular variable of interest, in order to find the most significant explanatory factors for a dependent variable under study. Data can be exported for further analysis with other tools.

  • Nozzle

    Nozzle is an R package for generation of reports in high-throughput data analysis pipelines. Nozzle reports are implemented in HTML, JavaScript, and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), but developers do not need any knowledge of these technologies to work with Nozzle. Instead they can use a simple R API to design and implement powerful reports with advanced features such as foldable sections, zoomable figures, sortable tables, and supplementary information.
