Genome Browser resource contains the reference (or official) public DNA sequences and working draft assemblies for human and a large collection of other genomes. There are a number of tools within it that provide access to the sequences themselves, and many other useful genome features to add context to the genomic information. Researchers can use this site to find genes and gene predictions, expression information, SNPs and variations, cross-species comparative data, and more.
