Genomic information shows some characteristics that make them very difficult to interpret and to exploit. Such data constitute an important factual resource (GenBank, SwissProt, GeneOntology, or Decrypthon...), are heterogeneous, huge in quantity, and geographically distributed. This paper presents Genome3DExplorer, a new modeling and software solution to visualize textual and factual genomic data based on adapted federator description language. The exploration is based on a well-adapted

Finally, we present results produced by Genome3DExplorer software on various sets of biological data.
