Tools for Comparative Genomics

VISTA is a comprehensive suite of programs and databases for comparative analysis of genomic sequences. There are two ways of using VISTA - you can submit your own sequences and alignments for analysis (VISTA servers) or examine pre-computed whole-genome alignments of different species.

 

Submit Your Sequences

mVISTA

  • mVISTA

    Align and compare your sequences from multiple species

  • rVISTA

    Locate regulatory sequences in your data using comparative sequence analysis and transcription factor binding site search.

  • gVISTA

    Compare your sequences against whole-genome assemblies.

  • wgVISTA

    Align pair of sequences up to 10Mb long (finished or draft) including microbial whole-genome assemblies.

 

Precomputed Alignments

VISTA Browser

  • VISTA-Point

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

  • VISTA Browser

    Examine pre-computed pairwise and multiple alignments of whole genome assemblies.

  • Whole Genome rVISTA

    Identify transcription factor binding sites that are conserved between species and over-represented in upstream regions of groups of genes.

  • Microbial Genomes

    Access pre-computed full scaffold alignments for microbial genomes through the VISTA component of IMG.

 

New tool from VISTA family!

RViewer iconVISTA Region Viewer (RViewer) is an interactive on-line tool for comparing and prioritizing genomic intervals.

Updates

April 2014
Updated the Sorghum, Monkey flower, Moss, Maize, Medicago, Switchgrass, and Soybean assemblies, and added 5 new plants: C. grandiflora, Drummond's rockcress, Turnip mustard, A. halleri, and Hall's panicgrass.

180 New whole-genome plant alignments are added to VISTA Browser.

August 2013
Updated the C. elegans and C. briggsae assemblies, and added 5 new worms: C. brenneri, C. remanei, C. japonica, C. sp. 11, and C. angaria.
