Circos

Online

Displays large volumes of genomic rearrangement data. Circos is a visualization tool that applies a circular ideogram layout to display relationships between genomic intervals. The software provides a scalable means to illustrate relationships between genomic positions and is designed to allow flexible and easy rearrangement of elements in the image. It also contains several tools to help analyze, filter, and format data.

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..
