What is Circular Genome View ?
CGView is a Java package which allows to produce high quality, zoomable maps of circular genomes. Its primary purpose is to serve as a component of sequence annotation pipelines, as a mean of generating visual output suitable for the web. Starting with information of one genome and the features to visualize, CGView converts the input into a graphical map (PNG, JPG, or Scalable Vector Graphics format) and completes it with labels, a title, legends, and footnotes.
How to use the Circular Genome View ?
When you select the Circular Genome View functionality you obtain a global circular map of the selected sequence. Circles display (from the outside):
Genes displayed in (2) and (3) are color-coded according different categories:
In addition to the default full view map, the program can generate a series of hyperlinked maps showing expanded views. You can use the CG View toolbar to navigate into the circular map.
Only the 5 first buttons are active on the toolbar:
If you click on a gene name/label it open the corresponding Gene window giving you access the full annotation of the gene.
