    IGV is just about the only software program that I know of smart enough not to care about the presence or absence of "chr" in the name of the chromosome, at least for the human and mice genomes. I would congratulate the IGV programmer who programmed IGV not to care whether the "chr" is there or not.

    Apparently, the human race is smart enough to sequence the human genome, not smart enough to decide whether chromosome 1 should be written "chr1" or "1".

      It's the same genome as GRCm38.
      I think you'll have to reload the BAM file after you've selected the correct genome.

      Then, zoom into a location where you know you will have coverage.
      For RNA-Seq for example, you could pick a housekeeping gene, like GAPDH.
      Just type GAPDH in the search box, and click on the Go button.
      Didnt work

      @Milestailsprowe: If above does not work, create a new "genome" by pointing to the iGenomes (/path_to/WholeGenomesFasta/genome.fa file) and use the corresponding GTF file from (/path_to/Annotations/Genes/genes.gtf). Open your BAM file in IGV.


      Where do I put the .gtf file?

      Thank you for all your help. I'm a graduate student trying to figure this out and my professor never has time sadly

        Your comment got me thinking, and I've finally found out how come IGV is the only program that can handle smoothly both UCSC and Ensembl chromosome nomenclature. IGV uses a chromosome name alias file.
        Simple, but so useful.

        "Note: Certain well-known aliases are built into IGV and do not require an alias file. These include mappings that involve adding or removing the prefix "chr" to the name, for example 1 -> chr1 and chr1 -> 1. Also, NCBI identifiers that start with "gi|" and follow the pattern illustrated in the example above are automatically mapped. "

        It really shouldn't be necessary to load your own genome fasta file, or your own GTF file. If you absolutely insist on doing it, the Gene file would be the GTF file.

        I'm wondering if you aren't using an ancient version of IGV. The chromosome alias file only appeared in IGV 1.53, which would explain why you can't view your data, if the chromosome nomenclature is different. @Genomax's solution to load your own genome file would then be correct, although a better solution would be to upgrade IGV.

        Check which version of IGV you are using. If it's a prehistoric version, just upgrade to 2.3 before doing any more troubleshooting. Then select mm10, reload the BAM file, and view a region that you know has high coverage.

        I don't recognize the interface you show in your screenshot in recent versions of IGV, and I believe the interface should be the same across all operating systems. I've only seen this interface in very old versions of IGV.

        I could be completely wrong, of course. It wouldn't be the first time.

          Point to the GTF file in the option box that says "Gene" file.

          You can also read in the GTF file along with your BAM later on.

            I'm usuing version 2.3.14 (16)

            Can you please give me a run down on how you would do it from start the finish. NOthing is showing up

            Where would you download your orginal file? Please. dont understand how I can have file multiple gigs big and no data show up

              Can you run the samtools flagstat/idxstats commands on your BAM file and post the output? That would give us an idea of what the status is as far as alignments are concerned.

              Did you try my suggestion with the iGenomes files/IGV?

                  Oh. I have one file that I got to work in goldenhelix. I just compare it to the the one I showed you and there is a big difference in the %. What does that mean
