A large number of genomes have been sequenced, allowing a range of comparative studies. Here, we present the eukaryotic Gene Order Browser with information on the order of protein and non-coding RNA (ncRNA) genes of 74 different eukaryotic species. The browser is able to display a gene of interest together with its genomic context in all species where that gene is present. Thereby, questions related to the evolution of gene organization and non-random gene order may be examined. The browser also provides access to data collected on pairs of adjacent genes that are evolutionarily conserved. AVAILABILITY: eGOB as well as underlying data are freely available at http://egob.biomedicine.gu.se SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Supplementary data are available at Bioinformatics online.

We now have a tremendous opportunity to better understand which genes are the most variable or conserved, and what their particular functions and evolutionary dynamics are, through comparative genomics.
We chose human and eleven other high-coverage mammalian genome data-as well as an...
