R&D Magazine features genome browser Argo

By Broad Institute Communications

In the latest issue of R&D Magazine, the Broad-developed genome browser Argo is featured as a tool for promoting genomic studies. David DeCaprio and Reinhard Engels are quoted.

Argo is a Java application that is used for visualizing and manually annotating whole genomes. It provides an easy-to-read display of sequence and annotation tracks, customization options and an interactive zoom from megabase to nucleotide resolution.

Initially developed for Broad Institute researchers working on distinguishing genes within the human genome, the tool was released free of charge last year.
