Sample Explorer

Search and explore metadata and variations (single nucleotide polymorphisms, SNPs and insertions and deletions, INDELs) associated with biological samples and display them in the Genome Browser and the Population Biology Browser.

Sample Explorer

The Sample Explorer allows you to query projects, samples, geodata and sample metadata to quickly locate populations and studies of interest. Features such as term suggestion allow you to rapidly isolate terms of interest, e.g., insecticide resistance or disease, and results are displayed as graphical summaries or can exported as a spreadsheet. Where genotype data is available for samples it is also possible to link to the genome browser variation display to explore the exact nature of genetic variation at a locus.

The Sample Explorer tutorial is available from the tool front page (top right corner) and also from this link. If you want to discuss any issues raised in these tutorials then please contact the help desk. Note that the Genotype Explorer has been retired as of 2019-04.
