DNAPlotter: Circular and Linear Interactive Genome Visualization

Bioinformatics. 2009 Jan 1;25(1):119-20. doi: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btn578. Epub 2008 Nov 5.


DNAPlotter is an interactive Java application for generating circular and linear representations of genomes. Making use of the Artemis libraries to provide a user-friendly method of loading in sequence files (EMBL, GenBank, GFF) as well as data from relational databases, it filters features of interest to display on separate user-definable tracks. It can be used to produce publication quality images for papers or web pages.
