AliTV – Alignment Toolbox and Visualization

The comparison of genome structures of organisms can yield interesting insights into evolutionary processes. In order to do the comparison, whole genome alignments are required. However, the interpretation of whole genome alignments is difficult without proper visualization. AliTV utilizes d3.js to create interactive visualizations of whole genome alignments.

Example visualizations including the alignment of seven chloroplast genomes are available online.
