Evoker: a visualization tool for genotype intensity data

Filed under: Bioinformatics — Biointelligence: Education,Training & Consultancy Services @ 5:53 am

Genome-wide association studies (GWAS), which produce huge volumes of data, are now being carried out by many groups around the world, creating a need for user-friendly tools for data quality control (QC) and analysis.
