GeConT 2: gene context analysis for orthologous proteins, conserved domains and metabolic pathways

Nucleic Acids Res. 2008 Jul 1;36(Web Server issue):W176-80. doi: 10.1093/nar/gkn330. Epub 2008 May 29.


The Gene Context Tool (GeConT) allows users to visualize the genomic context of a gene or a group of genes and their orthologous relationships within fully sequenced bacterial genomes. The new version of the server incorporates information from the COG, Pfam and KEGG databases, allowing users to have an integrated graphical representation of the function of genes at multiple levels, their phylogenetic distribution and their genomic context. The sequence of any of the genes can be easily retrieved, as well as the 5' or 3' regulatory regions, greatly facilitating further types of analysis. GeConT 2 is available at:
