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)

POD documentation

There are many useful POD documents included with the distribution. These are converted to HTML files when you install the package, and can be found in /gbrowse/docs/pod.

GBrowse 2.x pod documents can also be viewed online at CPAN:
