Retrieving reference data tracks

For most applications (except de novo sequencing), you will need reference data in the form of a reference genome sequence, annotations, known variants etc. There are three basic ways of obtaining reference data tracks:
  1. Import tracks from files (learn more in Import tracks from file).
    Standard Import (Image Next_Folder_16_n_p)
    The standard import accepts common data formats like fasta, genbank etc. (learn more in Bioinformatic data formats)
  2. Use the special plugins that integrate with Biobase's Genome Trax (learn more at
