Abstract

Summary Data integration and visualization help geneticists make sense of large amounts of data. To help facilitate interpretation of genetic association data we developed Toppar, a customizable visualization tool that stores results from association studies and enables browsing over multiple results, by combining features from existing tools and linking to appropriate external databases. Availability Detailed information on Toppar’s features and functionality are on our website http://mccarthy.well.ox.ac.uk/toppar/docs along with instructions on how to download, install and run Toppar. Our online version of Toppar is accessible from the website and can be test-driven using Firefox, Safari or Chrome on sub-sets of publicly available genome-wide association study (GWAS) anthropometric waist and body mass index (BMI) data (Locke, et al., 2015; Shungin, et al., 2015) from the Genetic Investigation of ANthropometric Traits (GIANT) consortium.
