Abstract

Genomics is growing at an unparalleled rate, and good methods are needed to store, view and manipulate the avalanche of data that is being produced. This article is a review of current database and browser methods for genome manipulation, across organisms and for a variety of purposes. Important resources in the field are noted, and gaps for new tool development are identified.
