Hi, Do you have plans to support the GTF file format? bedops provides gtf2bed which works pretty well, but it would be great if GenomeBrowse supported these natively cheers, Mark

GenomeBrowse 2.0 has been released! You can download the most recent installer from our website.

Included in the new version is the ability to convert several supported file types (GTF, FASTA, BED, VCF, etc.) to TSF (Golden Helix tabular file format) which can then be loaded for visualization into GenomeBrowse.

You can find full details in our new GenomeBrowse manual.

Hi Mark,

We are in the process of building a custom annotation source tool that will allow for the creation of custom annotation sources from different types of files (ex. FASTA, GFF, GTF), so we more than likely will not support direct GTF reading since this tool will make it unnecessary.

The custom annotation source tool is scheduled to be included first in our analysis software SVS, but soon after that we will be pushing the functionality to the stand-alone version of GenomeBrowse.

Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Thanks, Jami...
