Use Scribl to draw genomic glyphs on HTML5 canvas


The Scribl library by Chase Miller is an awesome and a promising Javascript library for visualizing biological sequence information and rendering it on the web. Scribl  generates biological charts of genomic regions, alignments, and assembly data. The library is under continuous development and I have been able to use it for some internal projects!

A very nice list of examples and introduction is available at the home page and the wiki provides an elaborate user guide!

Happy biology!
