Multi-genome Comparison Viewer (MCV)

The Multi-genome Comparison Viewer (MCV) allows users to rapidly align and compare mycobacterial genome synteny by selecting an anchor gene of interest. It is helpful for the genome structure and evolutionary analysis of Mycobacterium. Users can select any numbers of genome, zoom in or out and move upstream or downstream of genome in the viewer. Genes in MCV with the same color-coding are predicted homologs via COG designation, while grey means no homolog detected. Various properties of a gene, such as virulence factor, pseudogenes, genes in an operon or in a polymorphic region, are labeled with different legend, as follows:

common gene
virulence gene
pseudogene
common gene in an operon
virulence gene in an operon
pseudogene in an operon
common gene in a polymorphic region (e.g. RD)
virulence gene in a polymorphic region (e.g. RD)
pseudogene in a polymorphic region (e.g. RD)
common gene in an operon and polymorphic region (e.g. RD)
virulence gene in an operon and polymorphic region (e.g. RD)
pseudogene in an operon and polymorphic region (e.g. RD)

By clicking the gene, users can either re-anchor the viewer with this gene or goes to the detailed gene information page, Users can browse the gene function description when mouse over. Hold "CTRL" to select multiple genomes.
