Cells and Organisms, Genome
A view of LayerCake, showing 24 sequences, with each block of the color field aggregating 50 individual base pairs. Here the user has zoomed in on one such block, showing all reads for 50 base pairs simultaneously in a zoomed in area. The reference genome is repeated between each row for context. The user can further mouse over a particular column to see the identity of variants (in terms of base pairs) in each sequence in the histogram on the far right. Rows not within the zoom window are slightly “fogged”
