Bertalan Meskó points out a few new genomics tools on his ScienceRoll blog. Martin Krzywinski has three tools that Meskó likes. Circos can be used to visualize alignments; the genome coverage simulation shows how a genome would be covered by mapping or sequencing; and another visualizes genomic sequence assemblies in color. Lastly, he links to the Broad's Integrative Genomics Viewer which he likens to a Google Map.
