Viewing RNA-seq data on the entire human genome

RNA-Seq Viewer is a web application that enables users to visualize genome-wide expression data from NCBI’s Sequence Read Archive (SRA) and Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) databases. The application prototype was created by a small team during a three-day hackathon facilitated by NCBI at Brandeis University. The backend data pipeline was developed and deployed on a shared AWS EC2 instance.

 RNA-seq data for all chromosomes can be filtered on demand and viewed en masse
