Track lists

Tracks are saved as files in the Navigation Area and they have icons to represent their type, e.g. an annotation track (Image annotation_track). In order to visualize several tracks together, you create a Track List (Image tracklist):

        File | New | Track List (Image tracklist)

Alternatively, there is a button when you open a track that can be used for creating a track list. An example of a track list view is shown in figure 24.1 shows an example of a track list including a track with mapped reads at the top, followed by a variant detection track. Below are two tracks from the reference genome: the genomic sequence and CDS annotations.
