    v29 v30  
    55The distinctive features of [http://utgenome.org/UTGBMedaka UTGB Medaka] are as follows: 
    66 * '''Highly-sophisticated web interface''' with ''drag & drop'' and ''resize'' supports of database tracks.  
    7    * In UTGB Medaka, we aggressivly incorporated the latest web application technologies, including [http://code.google.com/webtoolkit Google Web Tooklits (GWT)], to enhance the user experience. Traditional web applications have to redraw the entire page in order to move or resize some components within the displayed page, which requires frustrating page reloading. But in [http://utgenom.org/UTGBMedaka UTGB], drag & drop and resize operations can be performed quite smoothly, since we can relocate components (such as tracks) in a page locally by using JavaScript engine, which requires no page reloading. The modern web browsers (e.g., IE, Firefox, Safari, etc.) are already equipped with JavaScript engine, so you can use the [http://utgenom.org/UTGBMedaka UTGB Medaka] immediately.

    9  * '''Quick responce''' via AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript + XML) technology. AJAX is a kind of back-ground internet connection, which utilizes the idle network resources while you are viewing a page. For example, our keyword search engine, which can quickly show your interested sequence positions from the input keywords (e.g., gene names, clones, EnsembleID, GO:Id, etc.), first submits your keywords to the database server, and waits the search results from the server in a background process. You can still continue the browsing, since there is no page move. After the search results are achieved, the UTGB dynamically displays the search results to the browser.
