VGO 3.1 – Viral Genome Browser

VGO 3.1


VGO (Viral Genome Organizer) is an easy-to-use Java genome browser.  It can be used to display information about a genome, including its genes, ORFs and start/stop codons. It can also be used to perform a regular expression search, a fuzzy motif search, and a masslist search. Because VGO talks to our database of genome sequences (VOCs) it can be used to compare genomes.
