This question is more around visualisation tools/techniques. A lot of papers have very beautiful bedgraph track figures specially the gene annotation bit below them and those sort of figures just dont seem possible to generate from the UCSC browser track. At the end, the refseq ( or ensembl) transcript structure for the gene always looks a little clunky. Was wondering if there is any specific tool/browser that people use to generate better looking bedgraph track figures ?

Thanks !

I see. I always used to right click on the browser and use the view image option,save it as a jpg and try and edit in Illustrator. I've never really worked with .eps formats or Inkscape. Will see if I can make the transcript structures look less pixelated and clunky and just less clustered using the above ( an issue when scaling down the images). thanks !
