STAR: An Integrated Solution to Management and Visualization of Sequencing Data: "

Motivation: Easily visualization of complex data features is a necessary step to conduct studies on next generation sequencing (NGS) data. We developed STAR, an integrated web application that enables online management, visualization, and track-based analysis of next generation sequencing data.

Results: STAR is a multi-layer web service system. On the client-side, STAR leverages JavaScript, HTML5 Canvas and asynchronous communications to deliver a smoothly scrolling desktop-like graphical user interface (GUI) with a suite of in-browser analysis tools that range from providing simple track configuration controls to sophisticated feature detection within datasets. On the server-side, STAR supports private session-state retention via an account management system and provides data-management modules that enable collection, visualization and analysis of third-party sequencing data from the public domain with over thousands of tracks hosted to date. Overall, STAR represents a next-generation data exploration solution to match the requirements of next-generation sequencing data, enabling both intuitive visualization and dynamic analysis of data.

Availability: STAR browser system is freely available on the web at: http://wanglab.ucsd.edu/star/browserhttps://github.com/angell1117/STAR-genome-browser
