GenBank / DDBJ

 SnapGene and  SnapGene Viewer can import sequences directly from GenBank, and can read GenBank files saved locally to a disk. Shown below is an example of a GenBank record viewed with a web browser, and the corresponding map after import into SnapGene. SnapGene can also open records from the DNA Data Bank of Japan (DDBJ).
