The metavizr package implements two-way communication between the R/Bioconductor computational genomics environment and Metaviz. Objects in an R/Bioconductor session can be visualized and explored using the Metaviz navigation tool and plots. Metavizr uses Websockets to communicate between the browser Javascript client and the R/Bioconductor session. Websockets are the protocols underlying the popular Shiny system for authoring interactive web-based reports in R.
