We enhanced GIB to version 3.0 to accommodate rapidly increasing genomic information. GIB 3.0 uses distributed RDBs on multiple PC-Linux platforms and a homology search server on Unix platform. The WWW server communicates with these servers by use of
CORBA and XML. The new version of GIB stores, processes and displays all the features in the Flat Files including CDS and RNA. In a comparative genomes page of GIB 3.0, you can select multiple genomes that you are interested in. The user interface is improved in GIB 3.0 as well.
