NGS Browser

(To be removed) Visualize and explore alignments

The app will be removed in a future release.


The NGS Browser app lets you visualize and explore the alignment of reads to a reference sequence.

You can:

  • Visualize short-read data aligned to a nucleotide reference sequence, and compare multiple data sets aligned against a common reference sequence.

  • View coverage of different regions of the reference sequence.

  • Investigate quality and other details of aligned reads.

  • Identify polymorphisms and visualize insertions and deletions.

  • Retrieve feature annotations relative to a specific region of the reference sequence.

Open the NGS Browser App

  • MATLAB® Toolstrip: On the Apps tab, under Computational Biology, click the app icon.

  • MATLAB command prompt: Enter ngsbrowser.
