There exist many tools that can make your life easier when creating figures, and knowing a few of them can save you a lot of time. Depending on the type of visual you're trying to create, there is generally a dedicated tool that will do what you're trying to achieve.
Produces for researchers publication-quality figures in a variety of hardcopy formats and interactive environments across platforms. Matplotlib is conceptually divided into three parts: (1) the pylab interface user to create plots with code quite similar to MATLAB; (2) the frontend or API is the set of classes that do the heavy lifting, creating and managing figures, text, lines, plots; and (3) the backends are device-dependent drawing devices that transform the frontend representation to hardcopy or a display device.
Gives access to many free software tools for sequence analysis. EMBOSS aims to serve the molecular biology community. It permits the creation and the release of software in an open source spirit. This tool is useful for sequence analysis into a seamless whole. It is free of charge and is available in open source.
A software tool for designing graphics and layouts, edit photos, and create websites. With advanced support for Windows 10, multi-monitor viewing and 4K displays, the suite lets first-time users, graphics pros, small business owners and design enthusiasts deliver professional results with speed and confidence. Discover high-caliber and intuitive tools within your graphic design software to create logos, brochures, web graphics, social media ads or any original project.
Converts meaningful data into attention-grabbing visualizations. Gnuplot supports many types of plots in either 2D and 3D. It can draw using lines, points, boxes, contours, vector elds, surfaces, and various associated text. It also supports various specialized plot types. Gnuplot was designed to allow scientists and students to visualize mathematical functions and data interactively, but has grown to support many non-interactive uses such as web scripting.
