Reconstructs alternate allele sequence
Reads are aligned against the reconstructed alternate allele sequence – no more awkward visual contortions of the standard reference genome.
Supports any read data in BAM format
Supports short reads, for example from Illumina short-fragment and mate-pair libraries
Also supports long read data, such as Moleculo (assembled), MinIon or PacBio.
Realignment around breakpoints
Performs a full Smith-Waterman alignment so that reads are aligned across structural variant breakpoints.
Interactive browser view
Supports zooming in and out and shows detailed information about each read upon request.
Export to PNG, PDF or SVG
Export to vector or raster image formats from the browser view or directly from the command-line.
Analyze many putative structural variants simultaneously from an input VCF file.
Example heterozygous insertion fully spanned by multiple PacBio reads.
The insertion is shown in blue, replacing a short deleted segment colored orange.
Example deletion in a trio; based on svviz's output, mother and son appear to be heterozygous for the deletion, while the father is homozygous (only a single read supports the reference, with minimal overlap with the deletion).
