Genquire - an integrated graphical genomic editor/browser - is now available at Bioinformatics.org.

Genquire has now been released under a BSD license.  Built on bioperl and bioperl-gui, this application allows users to graphically view, insert, delete, modify, and further annotate genomic features.

New applications can be added to Genquire using a simple XML-based plugin layer.  This allows one-click access to your most used genomic applications, such as BLAST or SIM4, from a graphical view of the sequence.

Genquire comes with a predefined database schema, but is built using an adaptor layer that will allow relatively quick adaptation of all of Genquire's features to any genomic data source that can talk to perl.

Genquire gives users three views of the sequence simultaneously: chromosome, contig and sequence views can be used interactively.

Genquire is integrated with the Gene Ontology system for direct access to the GO database and graphical GO annotation of genomic features.

Come see Genquire at Bioinformatics.org.
