Visualizing and analyzing genomic segmentations
Description: The software efficiently calculates a variety of summary statistics and produces corresponding publication quality visualizations. The overall goal of Segtools is to provide a bird's-eye view of complex genomic data sets, allowing researchers to easily generate and confirm hypotheses. Segmentations should be in BED4+ or GFF format, with the 'name' field of each line used specifying the segment label of that line. The Segtools commands allow you to compare the properties of the segment labels with one another.
