UCSC Archaeal Genome Browser

The UCSC Archaeal Genome Browser is a simple, graphic navigation tool and annotation database designed to help researchers perform effective research and analysis, while being relatively easy to improve in content and function of archaeal species. It displays G/C content, gene and operon annotation from multiple sources, sequence motifs (promoters and Shine-Dalgarno), microarray data, multi-genome alignments and protein conservation across phylogenetic and habitat categories.
