SUMMARY: High-quality draft genomes are now easy to generate, as sequencing and assembly costs have dropped dramatically. However, building a user-friendly searchable Web site and database for a newly annotated genome is not straightforward. Here we present Badger, a lightweight and easy-to-install genome exploration environment designed for next generation non-model organism genomes.

AVAILABILITY: Badger is released under the GPL and is available at We show two working examples: (i) a test dataset included with the source code, and (ii) a collection of four filarial nematode genomes.
