CGView - Circular Genome Viewer
Creating a Map
Creating a Map
There are three ways to generate maps using CGView:
  • Use the CGView application - The CGView application can be used to generate static images (in PNG, JPG, or SVG format), or to generate a linked set of map images that permit genome navigation and linking to external resources. The linked set of maps are JavaScript and Java-free and can be viewed using any current web browser. Once the linked maps are generated that can be served as standard web content. The CGView application is designed to be run from the command line, so that it can be integrated into sequence analysis pipelines.
  • Use the CGView applet - The CGView applet converts a simple tab-delimited text file into a graphical map. The main drawback is that only users with the Java plugin will be able to use the applet.
  • Use the CGView API - The CGView API can be used by other Java applications to create maps.
  • Use the CGView Server - The CGView Server can be used to create maps online.
