Genomicus is a genome browser that enables users to navigate in genomes in several dimensions : linearly along chromosome axes, transversaly across different species, and chronologicaly along evolutionary time.

It represents in a graphical way mainly data stored in the Ensembl database.

Six different browsers are currently maintained, dedicated to different groups of eukaryote species :

Genomicus Vertebrates

Genomicus Plants

Genomicus Metazoa (non vertebrates)

Genomicus Protists

Genomicus Fungi

Genomicus "Trout"
