Tbrowse- HTML5 Transcriptome Browser

tbrowse is HTML5/javascript based browser designed specifically for visualizing RNA-seq results. This project aims to provide a simple, intuitive browser for exploring RNA-seq data in the familiar track layout of common genome browser. But given the quantitative nature of RNA-seq data, in addition to visualizing sequence coverage, the browser quantitates transcript abundance across regions of interest.

The project makes use of the new HTML5 functionality to render all the tracks using the canvas drawing element. This greatly reduces the load on servers and allows for rich interactive graphics without the need for third-party plugins. Furthermore, this framework completely segregates data from visualization, making development much easier.

The browser is designed to run on all modern browser: Firefox, Safari, Chrome, Opera and Internet Explorer (though not recommended).
