New 3D genome browser: 3dgenome.org

Feng Yue laboratory from Pennsylvania State University has published genome browser displaying 3D interactions between DNA strand parts in the nucleus. The browser is available here.

3dgenome.org integrates regulatory regions descriptions, known interactions between DNA strand parts, genetic variation catalog and many other data. All currently supplied databases include: Hi-C, Virtual 4C, ChIA-pet, Capture Hi-C, HiChIP, PLAC-Seq, GAM, DNase Hi-C, SPRITE. Users can also upload their own data for visualization and exploration purposes.

The tool can be used for discovering high-resolution regulatory interactions, identifying genes regulated by other genes, studying conservation of genome structure, showing structural variation in diseases.
