JBrowse is a genome browser with an AJAX-based interface. JBrowse renders most tracks using client side JavaScript and JSON as its data transfer format. JBrowse is currently under development by the Ian Holmes Lab at UC Berkeley. It is expected to have a production release in 2009. Most development has been done by Mitch Skinner. JBrowse was formerly known as GBrowse 3. However, this name was changed to JBrowse to avoid confusion: JBrowse is an alternative to GBrowse, not a successor.
