The NCBI Map Viewer provides graphical displays of features on the genome assembly. Map features that can be seen along the sequence include annotated genes and transcripts, Gnomon-predicted gene and transcript models, aligned transcript and genomic sequences, RefSeq scaffolds (the 'Contig' map), and more. Assembly and annotation data available is based on the TAIR10 release. Functional annotation is continuously updated as a result of user input and NCBI's curation efforts.

Arabidopsis thaliana is a small flowering plant of mustard family, brassicaceae (Cruciferae). It was selected as a model organism for genome sequencing in plants based on the fact that it has (1) a small genome of ~120 Mb with a simple structure having few repeated sequences and high gene density (2) short generation time of six weeks from seed germination to seed set (3) produces large number of seeds, and (4) is easy to transform. The sequencing was done by an international collaboration, collectively termed the Arabidopsis Genome Initiative (AGI). It consisted of research groups in the U.S., Europe and Japan. The project was initiated in 1996 and completed in 2000 (Nature, 408:796-815).
