IGV for iPad will launch from links embedded in web pages, documents, and email messages. These links make use of a dynamic PHP file hosted at the Broad Institute.
The same link will directly launch IGV on the iPad or download a clickable jnlp icon on the desktop computer.
On the desktop, depending on the version of Java, the downloaded jnlp icon may have to be right-clicked and Opened With>Java Web Start. This will launch desktop IGV with the specified data.
The links can specify the reference genome, one or more datasets, and the initial viewing locus.
Here is an example
of the above link embedded in a web page. Clicking on the link will launch IGV, select the hg18 genome, load the hg18_egfr_cons.wig file, and set the viewing locus to chr7:55,052,219-55,244,525.
