A very simple new program is presented (G-SQUARES). It is useful in order to visualize the composition and basic structural features of whole genomes and selected chromosome regions. The frequency of all dimer and tetramer sequences is reported. Overall structural features are calculated, such as the tendency for alternation. A direct visual comparison among different sequences is easily available. Furthermore, the features which are visualized indicate further studies which should be carried out. Examples are presented on Alu sequences, CpG islands, whole eukaryotic and bacterial genomes.
