GBrowse is a genome viewer and is GMOD's most popular component. For a list of GBrowse and GMOD installations see the GMOD Users page. For a demo of its features, try the WormBase, FlyBase, or Human Genome Segmental Duplication Database web sites.
The Generic Genome Browser (GBrowse) is a combination of database and interactive Web page for manipulating and displaying annotations on genomes. Some of its features:
- 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)
