Aims to facilitate presentation of bacterial genomes, as well as annotation and analysis. GenColors is a web-based software/database system that provides tools for visualizing, comparing and analyzing the data. It consists in an approach with special emphasis on the comparison of closely related bacterial or small eukaryote genomes including the option of homology-based gene annotation. The software allows users to apply comparative genome analysis tools to a set of related genomes.
