NCBI Genome Workbench

Study, Analyze, Learn, Discover

Introductory screen shot

Genome Workbench offers researchers a rich set of integrated tools for studying and analyzing genetic data. Users can explore and compare data from multiple sources including the NCBI databases or the user’s own private data.

Data analysis in Genome Workbench is supported by an advanced suite of industry standard alignment tools including BLAST, Clustal, Kalign, MAAFT among others. Learning and Discovery is accomplished along the way. When a researcher studies and analyzes results with Genome Workbench, he or she views the data in novel ways that leads to new understanding and discovery.

Users are invited to take advantage of the flexibility included via these tools to create phylogenetic trees, alignments, tabular view etc. of data to graphically display data analyses in publications and presentations.
