Description:
Description: The advent of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technologies has enabled the generation of genomic data at unprecedented rates, posing major challenges for analysis and visualisation. The Ho laboratory at the VCCRI is involved in an international collaboration that involves generation and analysis of hundreds of genome-wide datasets of various fungal genomes. To facilitate collaboration among biologists and bioinformaticians in different geographical locations, we propose to build a web-based genome browser that can handle a large amount of epigenomic data. In our project, we propose to develop a fast, interactive, and collaborative web-based genome browser that supports large-scale epigenomic analysis. Students will extend existing state-of-the-art HTML5 genome browsers (e.g., http://www.biodalliance.org/), with additional functionalities that supports comparative analysis and collaborative research.
