The igv file extension is related to Integrative Genomics Viewer.

The igv file is a tab-delimited text file that defines tracks.

The first row contains column headings for chromosome, start location, end location, and feature followed by the name of each track defined in the .igv file. Each subsequent row contains a locus and the associated numeric values for each track.

IGV interprets the first four columns as chromosome, start location, end location, and feature name regardless of the column headings in the file.

IGV uses the column headings for the fifth and subsequent columns as track names. Feature names are not displayed in IGV.
