dc.description.abstractA large part of the human genome is made up of repeating elements. Out of these repeating elements segmental duplicates, or repeating gene patterns constitute 5% of the total human genome. Researchers are investigating the relationship between the repeats in the genome to identify whether these repeats are identical by coincidence or whether some biological process duplicates them. The GeneXplorer tool is designed to aid the researchers to view the repeating patterns in the whole Human genome and to study the repeats in a chromosome or different chromosomes simultaneously. The genome can be magnified and the sequences viewed in detail. The details of the sequence in the gene level can be examined and area can be studied using UCSC Human Genome Browser. User can also select a sequence from various overlapping sequences present at a particular chromosome location.
