Is there a plan to add support for “custom” genomes (either genomes not available by default or a reference set we are using as a “genome” in GenomeBrowse?

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 add custom genomes to GenomeBrowse. You can find full details in our new GenomeBrowse manual.

We are currently working on implementing a tool in GenomeBrowse that would allow the user to add genomes not currently available in the software. Those genomes could come from a variety of file types including FASTA, BED, GFF, UCSC Table Browser data, or VCF.

We are also in a continual process of adding new annotation tracks for various genomes that have been sequenced to GenomeBrowse. If you would like to have your genome added to that list please let us know.

Please see our website at the following link for upcoming features. ( )
