HiGlass is a web-based viewer for genome interaction maps featuring synchronized navigation of multiple views as well as continuous zooming and panning for navigation across genomic loci and resolutions. It can be used for visual comparison of Hi-C and other genomic data from different experimental conditions to efficiently identify salient outcomes of experimental perturbations, generate new hypotheses, and share the results with the community.




Nature News (2017) - TechBlog: HiPiler simplifies chromatin structure analysis
"Using bioinformatic algorithms, researchers can query chromatin-contact datasets to find all such structures. But these algorithms may return thousands of hits. How is a researcher to study them? Enter HiPiler. Developed by Gehlenborg’s lab in collaboration with the lab of Hanspeter Pfister at the John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Harvard, HiPiler excises these features and presents them on a canvas as miniature snippets — basically tiny segments of the full-sized contact map, which users can then organize, sort, and cluster based on parameters such as noise or location."
