What is the y-axis on RefGene?
When displaying gene tracks, GenomeBrowse attempts to stack the transcripts in an aesthetically pleasing manner. As a result, the Y values don't have any genomic or scientific meaning. They only represent a transcript's location in that aesthetic arrangement. We debated hiding numeric Y values for gene tracks, but have found that they are sometimes useful for navigation.
Questions should be tagged FeatureRequest for asking about a non-existing feature or proposing a new idea, GeneralInquiry for general questions about GenomeBrowse or directions on how to do something, or RanIntoProblem if you want to report an issue or had difficulty getting to an expected result.
