`Bioconductor`_ provides a convenient way to browse regions of the genome. browse-reads



galignments <- getReads(readGroupSetId="CMvnhpKTFhDnk4_9zcKO3_YB", chromosome="17",
                        start=41218200, end=41218500, converter=readsToGAlignments)
strand_plot <- autoplot(galignments, aes(color=strand, fill=strand))
coverage_plot <- ggplot(as(galignments, "GRanges")) + stat_coverage(color="gray40",
tracks(strand_plot, coverage_plot, xlab="chr17")

A more extensive example of read browsing with `Bioconductor`_ is documented towards the end of codelab Data Analysis using Google Genomics.

To make use of this upon your own data:

  1. First, load your data into `Google Genomics`_. See :doc:`/use_cases/load_data/index` for more detail as to how to do this.
  2. If you do not have them already, install the necessary `Bioconductor`_ packages. See `Using Bioconductor`_ for more detail as to how to do this. Alternatively, you can :doc:`/use_cases/run_familiar_tools/bioconductor`.
  3. Update the parameters to the getReads call the example above to match that of your data and desired genomic region to view.
