Presents the entire panda genome sequence, as well as the annotation information such as gene structure and functions, non-coding RNAs and repeat elements. The Giant Panda Database is illustrated in a MapView, which is powered by Google Web Toolkit. The polymorphism information detected in the diploid genome, such as single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), Indels, and structural variations (SV) were also presented. A module was developed to browse large-scale short reads alignment. This module enabled users track detailed divergences between consensus and sequencing reads.
