Summary: Genes sharing functions, expression patterns or quantitative traits are not randomly distributed along eukaryotic genomes. In order to study the distribution of genes that share a given feature, we present Cluster Locator, an online analysis and visualization tool. Cluster Locator determines the number, size and position of all the clusters formed by the protein-coding genes on a list according to a given maximum gap, the percentage of gene clustering of the list and its statistical significance. The output includes a visual representation of the distribution of genes and gene clusters along the reference genome.
Availability and implementation: Cluster Locator is freely available at http://clusterlocator.bnd.edu.uy/.
