VISTA, genome comparison resource

The VISTA comparative genome analysis resource updated their interface a few months ago. Additionally, they’ve added VISTA-Point (which replaces and greatly extends VISTA text browser) which, as the site says, allows the user to:

Access complete data and visual presentation of pairwise and multiple alignments of whole genome assemblies.

The homepage has undergone a very nice redesign. Much of the underlying VISTA browser and other tools functionality and use is similar (though updated of course). We understand also that there will be upcoming updates to some tools and the addition of others. Look for that here :D.

Also, we’ve updated our tutorial to reflect the new site and functions. As before, this tutorial is free to users and sponsored by VISTA. Check it out.
