About Generic Genome Browser (GBrowse)

GBrowse is a combination of database and interactive web pages for manipulating and displaying annotations on genomes. Features include:

  • Simultaneous bird's eye and detailed views of the genome.
  • Scroll, zoom, center.
  • Use a variety of premade glyphs or create your own.
  • Attach arbitrary URLs to any annotation.
  • Order and appearance of tracks are customizable by administrator and end-user.
  • Search by annotation ID, name, or comment.
  • Supports third party annotation using GFF formats.
  • Settings persist across sessions.
  • DNA and GFF dumps.
  • Connectivity to different databases, including BioSQL and Chado.
  • Multi-language support.
  • Third-party feature loading.
  • Customizable plug-in architecture (e.g. run BLAST, dump & import many formats, find oligonucleotides, design primers, create restriction maps, edit features)

Note that the information on this page refers to GBrowse 2; GBrowse 1.x is recommended only for applications where legacy browser support is required and a single database is used. Visit the GBrowse website.

Downloads

Download GBrowse: http://sourceforge.net/projects/gmod/files/Generic%20Genome%20Browser/

The development version of GBrowse is found at https://github.com/GMOD/GBrowse. Please be aware that development versions may have new features that are not fully tested.

Note that GBrowse can also be found on CPAN and in the Debian sid ("unstable") apt package repository (so it is available to install via apt-get in Ubuntu since release 12.04).

Using GBrowse

System Requirements
