Artemis: an integrated platform for visualization and analysis of high-throughput sequence-based experimental data

Bioinformatics. 2012 Feb 15;28(4):464-9. doi: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btr703. Epub 2011 Dec 22.


Motivation: High-throughput sequencing (HTS) technologies have made low-cost sequencing of large numbers of samples commonplace. An explosion in the type, not just number, of sequencing experiments has also taken place including genome re-sequencing, population-scale variation detection, whole transcriptome sequencing and genome-wide analysis of protein-bound nucleic acids.

Results: We present Artemis as a tool for integrated visualization and computational analysis of different types of HTS datasets in the context of a reference genome and its corresponding annotation.
