The software allows researchers to investigate individual variants through interactive filtering and alignment visualization. It is deployable to a cloud platform, local cluster, or desktop.


Generates reproducible maps of genes and genomes that can be used to generate publication-ready figures, starting from a wide range of formats. Since all the instructions for drawing the figures are contained in R code, genoPlotR is highly flexible, and thus it is straightforward to automate the process of drawing very similar figures for different datasets. The use of a scripting language makes it particularly suitable for integration into annotation and comparative genomics pipelines.
