WebACT provides a database of sequence comparisons between all publicly available prokaryotic genome sequences, allowing the on-line visualisation of comparisons between up to five genomic sequences, using the Artemis Comparison Tool (ACT) developed by the Sanger Institute.

Sequence comparisons can also be generated 'on the fly' for up to five user-entered sequences, by either uploading sequences, or querying public databases using sequence identifiers.

All pre-computed and user-generated comparisons can be viewed on-line using a webstart version of ACT or can be downloaded.
