Dear Arabidopsis researchers,

We are pleased to announce the first version of TAIR's SeqViewer. This new
graphical interface allows users to view and search the whole Arabidopsis
genome with associated annotation down to the nucleotide level. As with
the Map Viewer, each map element is hyperlinked to a detail page from our
database. A detailed help document on what is available and how to
navigate this tool is also available.

Release Notes:

Major Features :

    * Whole genome view showing positions of search hits.
    * Searching by sequence match (15-150 nt) or object name.
    * Closeup view zooms down to 10 kb.
    * Gene annotation including exons visible in the closeup view.
    * Gene, clone and marker positions highlighted in the nucleotide
        sequence window.
    * Nucleotide window displays sequence annotated with gene features
        (UTRs, translational start and stop, exons).
    * Forward strand or complement strand can be displayed.
    * Ability to compare annotations on regions of the same chromosome or
        different chromsomes.

Please see our Release Notes for a list of known bugs and
functionalities under development for our next release.

Please note that this is the first version and we are working on improving
functionalities for our next version. Please let us know if you find any
