Mutation Annotation Format (MAF) is a tabular data format used for storing genetic mutation data. For example, The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) project has made MAF files from each project publicly available.

MAFDash is an R package that helps to quickly create an HTML dashboard to summarize and visualize data from MAF files. The resulting HTML file serves as a self-contained report that can be used to explore and share the results.

Currently, MAFDash produces mostly static plots powered by maftools, ComplexHeatmap and circlize, as well as interactive visualizations using canvasXpress and plotly. The report is generated with a parameterized R Markdown script that uses flexdashboard to arrange all the information.
