A multi-genome browser carefully crafted using latest technologies.

Bioinformatics Storefront

Persephone™ is a modern way for bioinformaticians to present genomic data to biologists

Browse in Style

We focus on efficient storage, optimized transfer and fast rendering of genomic information. Navigating through data sets is fun. Genome is not static anymore. ``It's alive!``


We would be happy to show what a professional genome browser is capable of. Just send us an email. Thank you

We released a free web version of Persephone that runs in the browser (Chrome is recommended). We will populate it with public data while improving the functionality. Currently, you can view and compare genomes of :

Arabidopsis thaliana (TAIR10)
Citrus sinensis
(v2.0) – sweet orange
Citrus maxima (v1) – pomelo
Citrus clementina (v1.0) – clementine
Glycine max
(Wm82.a2.v1, Wm82.a4.v1) – soybean
Homo sapiens (GRCh38.p12, GRCh37.p13) – human
Oryza sativa ssp. japonica (
MSU_osa1r7) – rice japonica
Oryza sativa ssp.indica (ASM465v1) – rice indica
Rubus occidentalis 
(v3.0) – black raspberry
Sorghum bicolor
(v.3.1, , BTx623-IS320C)
Solanum licopersicum (
SL4.0, SL3.0, FLA1.3, M821.3) – tomato
Solanum tuberosum
(DM.v4.03) – potato
Triticum aestivum (IWGSC v1.0, ChineseSpring x Renan, RH_MAPS) – wheat
Zea mays (AGPv4, Mo17) – corn.

The latest news are updated in our blog.

Free Web Version

Compare whole chromosomes of Oryza sativa ssp. japonica and Oryza sativa ssp. indica

A free, fully-functional Windows desktop version is also available from our web site. It serves the data from our demo database that is populated with public genomic data for popular genomes like wheat (IWGSC v1.0) or human (GRCh38).

The latest news on the desktop version are updated in our blog.

Free Windows version

Cloud Service

The complete system can be installed on Amazon Web Services, so no additional internal hardware is needed.

Responsive Interface

The software was designed with performance in mind, handling large datasets with ease, while keeping memory usage to a minimum.

Vertical and Horizontal Layouts

Compare physical and genetic maps in vertical view, then switch to horizontal view to drill down to the nucleotide level.

In-House Installation

Persephone can be set up on premise. Our team will provide detailed instructions and will guide you through the installation process. We can also help with data loading and software integration.

Customer-led Design

Our team will work with you to develop the exact features you need.


Open local files in multiple formats, then visualize them alongside all the other data.

User Friendly

Persephone’s intuitive interface has been built based on suggestions from multiple researchers.

Visual BLAST

The users can run BLAST and evaluate its results graphically, integrated with the rest of the genomic data.


Save displayed genomic features in various formats, including FASTA, Genbank, and CSV.
