View and explore 3D genome models from Hi-C data using augmented reality technology.


Our vision is to create a seamless and fully interactive AR genome browser that revolutionizes how we explore genetic data. Through innovative features we have successfully realized this ambitious goal. Explore the intricate world of genomics on your mobile device like never before with ARGV!

Augmented Reality Controls
Interact with your data in a fully immersive AR environment.
Generic Data Overlays
Adapt any data over top of your 3D models.
Full AR Workflow
Work with your data entirely in augmented reality from your mobile device. No need to use the desktop.
350+ Data Sets
Access to a large set of 3D models easily accessible from within the application.

Open-Source project

Easily extensible codebase available allowing you to customize the application for your own needs.

Feature Highlights


You can enable models and add custom models to the system for any species or genome set.


View annotations as rings around sections of the model.


View genes around the model with start and end of base pairs.

Data Panels

View genes around the model with start and end of base pairs.


Searching by position, genes and disease to gene relationships.

AR + 2D Screen

Use this application on AR or as just a 2D version with your mobile device.

Custom Database

Import custom database for as many species, genome sets and model sets as you want.

iOS / Android

Work on any modern mobile devices, phones and tablets which supports AR applications.
