Research Computing provides a website for users of the O2 cluster to present their data via HTTP for use with genome browsers such the UCSC Genome Browser and IGV:

User Access

To access this tool, the user must have an O2 cluster account and be a member of the group: genomebrowser-uploads

How to use the website

Once you have an O2 account with access, you can make your data presentable with the following steps:

  1. Create your personal data directory under: /n/groups/genomebrowser-uploads/data/
    1. For example (e.g. for user abc123): /n/groups/genomebrowser-uploads/data/abc123
  2. Copy your data files under the personal directory:
    1. For example: /n/groups/genomebrowser-uploads/data/abc123/mydata.bam
    2. Make sure your data files are set as world-readable (typically the default), so the web server can access them.
  3. View your data via this public URL:[USER_DIRECTORY]/[USER_DATA]
    1. In this example, the URL would be:
  4. Please remove your data files once analysis has been completed!
