Try out our new table download options from the NCBI genome browsers and sequence viewers!

Have you ever wanted a list of the genes you’re looking at in the browser – maybe to give you a starting point for candidate gene analysis, or to cross-reference with other data?

In response to your feedback and helpful discussions with you, we’re excited to announce a new option to download gene annotation data directly from the web sequence viewers and browsers.

This new feature lets you get a table of gene names, coordinates and other helpful information from your genomic region of interest.

Go to the Download menu on the toolbar of the graphical viewer to find options for getting sequence and annotation data.

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.

Change the way your graphs look with Genome Data Viewer’s enhanced settings

If you need to change your graph type – say, from histogram to line graph or a heat map – in Genome Data Viewer (GDV), you can now do so with a few clicks.

Click on the track name of any graph track to change the display (see Figure 1A, B and C).

See improvements in NCBI’s genome visualization and analysis tools at ASHG

GDV_homepage

In 2016, NCBI introduced the Genome Data Viewer (GDV). This past May, the GDV replaced the aging Map Viewer. Over the past year, NCBI has kept you updated about GDV through announcements, webinars, and blogs. Now you can gather information and get an overview of all the changes to GDV in person at ASHG!

Check out Poster 1670F “What’s new with NCBI tools for genome visualization and analysis.” on Friday, Oct. 19 from 3 PM to 4 PM
(Exhibit Hall, Ground Level)
