NCBI Sequence Viewer

NCBI Sequence viewer allows you to visualize molecular data on a chromosome scaffold. This viewer can display data from NCBI and your own data.


What data is shown can be altered by using the Tracks function. See the Tracks page for more information.


Tools can be used to alter how the tracks are viewed and navigate the sequence being displayed.  See the tracks page for more information.


Main Page

The main page is composed of rulers, so you know where you are on the sequence, and tracks, which display data. You can use the tools and tracks menus to alter what is displayed and how it is displayed.
