Genome Sequencing and Analysis of the Peanut B Genome Progenitor (Arachis ipaensis)

2018
Front Plant Sci
PMCID: 5943715
PMID: 29774047

[…] 0.7 (Additional file: Fig. ). Some regions with very high correlation coefficients (R >0.95, P-value <0.01) are detected in the genome, e.g., four regions on chromosome 12 (Fig. ). In this analysis, Circos (version 0.69) [] was used to plot the assembled chromosomes, GC content, and gene density.To investigate whether the distribution of the genes along the chromosomes is nonrandom, we computed t […]

A daunting tool to learn if you're not familiar with python scripting, but also one that has near limitless customization to produce incredibly crisp graphics that are immensely information dense (I've seen a few manuscripts where a Circos plot was the authors' ONLY figure). While a lot of stripped down GUI tools exist to capture the core capabilities of this program, it is more than worth your while to spend a few weeks running through all of the tutorials and customizing your plots for any number of applications (we use it a lot for display microRNA target relationships in grouped fashion with expression historgrams as an added layer).

Great tool to show genomic data including relationships among biological conditions or cross-sequencing (eg.: RNA-seq with WGBS) correlations etc..
