GeneViTo is a JAVA-based computer application that serves as a workbench for genome-wide analysis
through visual interaction.
GeneViTo offers an inspectional view of genomic functional elements, concerning data stemming both
from database annotation and analysis tools for an overall analysis of existing genomes. GeneViTo has
already been applied to visualize the genomes of two microbial organisms: the bacterion
Chlamydia trachomatis and the archaeon
The application is compatible with Linux or Windows ME-2000-XP operating systems, provided that the
appropriate Java Runtime Environment (Java 1.4.1) is already installed in the system.
