genoPlotR: comparative gene and genome visualization in R

Bioinformatics. 2010 Sep 15;26(18):2334-5. doi: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btq413. Epub 2010 Jul 11.


The amount of gene and genome data obtained by next-generation sequencing technologies generates a need for comparative visualization tools. Complementing existing software for comparison and exploration of genomics data, genoPlotR automatically creates publication-grade linear maps of gene and genomes, in a highly automatic, flexible and reproducible way.

Availability: genoPlotR is a platform-independent R package, available with full source code under a GPL2 license at R-Forge:
