Table 1 A comparison of different tools for the visualization of TCGA data. As illustrated by the Additional file 1: Figures S1, S2, S3 and S4, there are obvious differences between existing tools and MEXPRESS in both the data and the features these tools offer. This table lists the most relevant of these differences, thereby highlighting some of the strengths and weaknesses of each tool. (CGW Cancer Genomics Workbench, IGV Integrative Genomics Viewer)
