GeneView is a newly developed human gene mapping library system that works on an X-Window platform. This system is designed for researchers who routinely utilize gene mapping data in the laboratory but are unfamiliar with computer technology. GeneView offers various features, including friendly user interface, fast operation and visualization facility. Genetic loci are displayed graphically with an idiogram. This system can be operated in multiple languages. A current version supports Japanese and English, and can be easily expanded to include other languages. A prototype of GeneView is now installed on a SPARC (Sun4) workstation. Because of the X-Window platform, GeneView should be compatible with various types of workstations.
