Expressionview: visualization of quantitative trait loci and gene-expression data in Ensembl

Genome Biol. 2003;4(11):R77. doi: 10.1186/gb-2003-4-11-r77. Epub 2003 Oct 10.


We present here a software tool for combined visualization of gene-expression data and quantitative trait loci (QTL). The application is implemented as an extension to the Ensembl project and caters for a direct transition from microarray experiments of gene or protein expression levels to the genomic context of individual genes and QTL. It supports the visualization of gene clusters and the selection of functional candidate genes in the context of research on complex traits.
