Visualizing Haplotype Blocks

“When comparing the genome of two different people, you’ll see single letter changes (called SNPs, pronounced “snips”) every few thousand letters. An interesting feature of SNPs is that their ordering has distinct patterns, where sets of consecutive changes are most often found together. There are many methods for looking at this data, so this piece combines several of them into a single visual display.”
