Build Status Coverage Status

Ideogram.js is a JavaScript library for chromosome visualization.

Ideogram supports drawing and animating genome-wide datasets for human, mouse, and many other eukaryotes. The Ideogram API for annotations supports histograms, heatmaps, overlays, and points of arbitrary shape and color layered in tracks. Ideogram can depict haploid, diploid or higher ploidy genomes (e.g. plants), as well as aneuploidy, genetic recombination, and homologous features between chromosomes.

Ideogram can be embedded as a reusable component in any web page or application, and leverages D3.js and SVG to achieve fast, crisp client-side rendering. You can also integrate Ideogram with JavaScript frameworks like Angular, React, and Vue, as well as data science platforms like R and Jupyter Notebook.
