cgview - Circular Genome Viewer


cgview [OPTIONS] ...


CGView is a Java package for generating high quality, zoomable maps of circular genomes.
Its primary purpose is to serve as a component of sequence annotation pipelines, as a
means of generating visual output suitable for the web. Feature information and rendering
options are supplied to the program using an XML file, a tab delimited file, or an NCBI
ptt file. CGView converts the input into a graphical map (PNG, JPG, or Scalable Vector
Graphics format), complete with labels, a title, legends, and footnotes. In addition to
the default full view map, the program can generate a series of hyperlinked maps showing
expanded views. The linked maps can be explored using any web browser, allowing rapid
genome browsing, and facilitating data sharing. The feature labels in maps can be
hyperlinked to external resources, allowing CGView maps to be integrated with existing web
site content or databases.

-c <integer> Specifies the base to center on when zooming.
