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
Align and compare your sequences from multiple species
Locate regulatory sequences in your data using comparative sequence analysis and transcription factor binding site search.
Compare your sequences against whole-genome assemblies.
Align pair of sequences up to 10Mb long (finished or draft) including microbial whole-genome assemblies.
Access complete data and visual presentation of pairwise and multiple alignments of whole genome assemblies.
Examine pre-computed pairwise and multiple alignments of whole genome assemblies.
Identify transcription factor binding sites that are conserved between species and over-represented in upstream regions of groups of genes.
Access pre-computed full scaffold alignments for microbial genomes through the VISTA component of IMG.
New tool from VISTA family!
VISTA Region Viewer (RViewer) is an interactive on-line tool for comparing and prioritizing genomic intervals.
Added the Human Feb. 2009 - Chimp Feb. 2011 pairwise alignment.
Updated the Rice, Poplar, Medicago, Clementine, and C.reinhardtii assemblies, and added 12 new plants: Flax, Common bean, Apple, Strawberry, Red shepherd's purse, Napa cabbage, Salt cress, Cotton, Cacao, Potato, Tomato, and Switchgrass.
236 New whole-genome plant alignments are added to VISTA Browser.
Updated the Chimp, Rhesus, Mouse, Rat, Dog, and Chicken assemblies.
