UCSC Genome Browser

“In 2000, my group assembled and posted the first working draft of the human genome on the Internet, and created what is now an essential tool for biomedical research, the UCSC Genome Browser. Along with our sister project, the Ensembl browser, the UCSC Genome Browser serves as the world’s gateway to the human genome.”
