With the cost of genome sequencing getting cheaper every year, there is a rising demand for tools that enable researchers to make sense of the mountains of raw, high-throughput data without having to outsource to information specialists. To this end, scientists at Albert Einstein College of Medicine have developed new open-source software that allows researchers to perform genome analyses from the comfort of their own labs. The highly-visual software, called GenPlay, is an analyzer and browser that can sift through gene expression, epigenetic, and single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) data. It is described in a recent online edition of Bioinformatics and is freely available online.
