There is lots of fascinating structure in the human genome, such as the heterogenous distribution of genes along the chromosome. As well, within each gene, different isoforms of each gene exhibit a tantalizing variety of exons, introns and untranslated regions.
To see all this, the Human Gene Parade provides an interactive visual overview of the human genome, with an emphasis on ease-of-navigation throughout the chromosome, integrating three levels of detail:
Links are provided to the NCBI website for further detail.
The gene structure references the hg19 release 2009 of the human genome, as described in the UCSC gene structure file and gene name mapping file, which are derived from the NCBI RefSeq database of genes.
