GenomeSpy is an interactive visualization tool for genomic data. It provides a grammar for mapping data to visual channels (position, color, etc.) and composing complex visualization from primitive graphical marks (points, rectangles, etc.). The visualization is rendered using WebGL, and thus, GenomeSpy is able to provide fluid interactions and smooth animations for datasets as large as a few million data points.

To facilitate data exploration and comparison of multiple samples, GenomeSpy supports faceted visualizations and allows the user to filter and sort samples interactively.


TODO: A simple example with some sensible data, preferably genomic data.


GenomeSpy is developed by Kari Lavikka in The Systems Biology of Drug Resistance in Cancer group at the University of Helsinki.
