Genome Navigator is an attempt to provide a visual interactive gateway to major
databases containing physical and genetic mapping information about human, mouse
and yeast genomes.

Genomic maps of these organisms are displayed using DerBrowser, a Java applet,
designed as a universal tool to display and navigate various types of maps.
Among other features, it allows a user to query external databases about any map 
object. The list of data sources currently includes: 

Whitehead/MIT, GDB, CEPH-Genethon Infoclone, CHLC, Human Transcript Map, and 
several human chromosome-specific databases; EUCIB, Saccharomyces Genome Database,
YPD, MIPS and GeneQuiz server.
