Welcome to the igv-help group.  This is the official help and discussion forum for the Integrative Genomics Viewer (IGV). Please post questions, bug reports, and suggestions here. If you're having a problem, try searching this list to see if your question has already been addressed. Everyone is encouraged to contribute by suggesting bug fixes, and joining discussions of feature enhancements. Additional resources can be found at www.igv.org

If posting about a problem, please include:
  1. The version of IGV you are using, and your computer operating system.
  2. What you did. If the problem happens when you open a file and/or view certain genomic coordinates, attach the file* (or provide a link) and specify the genomic coordinates. Please DO NOT paste the contents of your file into an email or in the group's web interface, as files are whitespace sensitive which gets lost when sent in the body of an email. 
  3. What you expected to happen 
  4. What actually happened 
  5. Your igv.log file. It will be in <your home directory>/igv. 
The IGV team.
