The Genome Browser

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: This site contains the reference sequence and working draft assemblies for a
large collection of genomes (i.e. vertebrate, deuterostome, insect, nematode,
etc). It also provides a portal to the ENCODE project. We encourage you to
explore these sequences with our tools. The Genome Browser zooms and scrolls
over chromosomes, showing the work of annotators worldwide. The Gene Sorter
shows expression, homology and other information on groups of genes that can be
related in many ways. Blat quickly maps your sequence to the genome. The Table
Browser provides convenient access to the underlying database. VisiGene lets
you browse through a large collection of in situ mouse and frog images to
examine expression patterns. (Source: UCSC Genome Bioinformatics)
