NCBI’s Genome Workbench to Retire March 2024

As of March 2024, NCBI’s Genome Workbench, a desktop software suite of tools for visualizing and analyzing molecular sequence data, will no longer be available for download. Due to low usage of this product, we are focusing our effort on newer and more popular resources and tools.

If you have an existing version of Genome Workbench, you can continue to use it, but we will no longer provide customer support, software updates, or tutorial documentation. We will make no additional public releases or updates after March 2024.

We encourage you to check out NCBI web tools that provide subsets of Genome Workbench services:
