Structural genomic variations play an important role in human disease and phenotypic diversity. With the rise of high-throughput sequencing tools, mate-pair/paired-end sequencing has become an important technique for the detection and exploration of structural variation. ViVar is a comprehensive analysis platform for the processing, analysis and visualization of structural variation based on sequencing data or genomic microarrays, enabling the rapid identification of disease loci or genes. It allows you to scale your analysis with your work load over multiple (cloud) servers, has user access control to keep your data safe but still easy to share, and is easy expandable as analysis techniques advance.
