GeneChords is the supplementary website/database to the paper. Users can retrieve conserved gene cluster data from a number of microbial genomes as well as perform searches based on genomic context. GeneChords will be continuously updated(see update log) with newly sequenced microbial genomes. See paper for detailed description of the method.
