EnsEMBL offers several different displays, all centered around the 'ContigView' showing the DNA horizontally with a row for every feature. The view is user configurable so that data that is of no interest for the specific user can be excluded. All features (for a list see chapter 1) are clickable and will then offer a range of options from going to source files to downloading sequences. ContigView can be accessed by either doing a text search (http://www.ensembl.org/Multi/textview, also available from every EnsEMBL page) or a BLAST search at http://www.ensembl.org/Multi/BLASTview.
Starting from any ContigView page in either EnsEMBL or Vega you can simply browse up and down the genomic sequence to find out about neighbouring features. If you're interested in an examples for ContigView pages, start at in either EnsEMBL http://www.ensembl.org/Danio_rerio/ or Vega http://vega.sanger.ac.uk/Danio_rerio/ by clicking one of the chromosomes, then in the next page ('MapView') click the chromosome in any location.
An EnsEMBL ContigView page shows the general genomic neighbourhood,
as well as the more detailed view of genomic features in the selected region.
The same applies for the Vega 'ContigView' Pages.
