Dot, an interactive viewer for genome-genome comparison

https://github.com/dnanexus/dot

Dot, an interactive dot plot viewer that allows genome scientists to visualize genome-genome alignments in order to evaluate new assemblies and perform exploratory comparative genomics. 

Dot supports the output of MUMmer’s nucmer aligner the most commonly used software method for aligning genome assemblies. A quick script called DotPrep.py converts the delta file to a more streamlined coordinates file with an index that enables Dot to read in more alignments in certain regions on demand.
