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.
