GRS is a graphic tool for retrieval and visualization of genome segments from partially or completely sequenced genomes. To facilitate visual identification of conserved genomic motifs, genes are color-coded according to their presumed functional roles. Aligned genes can be rapidly screened for potential homology by automatic retrieval and alignment of the corresponding protein sequences. Furthermore, the map location of any genome segment can be visually compared to the position of the same segment in other genomes or to the position of other segments within the same genome. The gene string analysis option of GRS allows the identification of genes that are identically arranged in any pairwise set of genomes.
