UCSC Data Integrator

The UCSC Genome Bioinformatics Group has launched Data Integrator, a new tool that lets users combine and export data from multiple tracks simultaneously. It lets users select up to five tracks, including custom and hub tracks, and output tab-separated texts that contain all the fields contained in the selected tracks or a subset of the larger information set. Users can also query current Genome Browser positions; and search for the positions of items such as genes, SNPs, and so on by name among other capabilities.
