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.

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

Genomicus Vertebrates
Genomicus Plants
Genomicus Metazoa (non vertebrates)
Genomicus Fungi
Genomicus Protists
Genomicus Trout
Genomicus Tunicates
Genomicus Amphioxus
