GBrowse Genome Browser + AJAX

In a previous post I introduced a PHP script to display tracks from the UCSC Genome Browser using SVG. A week later, a mail was sent on the UCSC mailing list to introduce the GBrowse/BioPerl browser based on AJAX and written at the Ian Holmes lab (Berkeley).

Now, let's wait for a genome browser based on both technologies :-)....

A minor correction... the AJAX demo you linked to is actually by the Ian Holmes lab (http://www.biowiki.org/) at UC Berkeley and doesn't really have any connection to the UCSC browser. We based the server side on the GBrowse/BioPerl framework and wrote the Web client from scratch in JavaScript.
