Browsers Using Non-UCSC Software
The UCSC Genome Browser is primarily funded to host vertebrate genomes. However, you can load your own assemblies onto the UCSC site without intervention by UCSC using the Assembly Hub mechanism.
If you are looking for a genome browser that UCSC does not host, it may be available from another source. These browsers are not affiliated with the UCSC Genome Browser and any questions regarding them should be directed to their hosts.
