An interactive genome browser of association results from the UK10K cohorts project.

UNLABELLED: High-throughput sequencing technologies survey genetic variation at genome scale and are increasingly used to study the contribution of rare and low-frequency genetic variants to human traits. As part of the Cohorts arm of the UK10K project, genetic variants called from low-read depth (average 7×) whole genome sequencing of 3621 cohort individuals were analysed for statistical associations with 64 different phenotypic traits of biomedical importance. Here, we describe a novel genome browser based on the Biodalliance platform developed to provide interactive access to the association results of the project. AVAILABILITY AND IMPLEMENTATION: The browser is available at Source code for the Biodalliance platform is available under a BSD license from, and for the LD-display plugin and backend from
