Abstract

The 3D Genome viewer is a 3D model of the Human Genome rendered using the Unity Game Engine that allows the user to manipulate the image as if going through a video game. The first versions of the viewer, completed May 2014 and May 2015 were very slow. It was proposed that the speed could be improved if a technique called threading was implemented. The times for the old and new program to render 500, 1000, and 10,000 base pairs and the new program was shown to have a significant improvement.
