Easily configure gene feature modes in NCBI’s graphical sequence displays


Did you know you can easily switch between gene feature modes in NCBI’s graphical sequence displays like Sequence Viewer and GDV? You may need to configure gene tracks to suit your needs if, for example, you need to conduct analyses or present quality images.

Use one of two easy access points to the gene configuration menu to show the gene bar, the single line gene model or the expanded modes that show transcripts and CDSs.
