Currently I am using IGV to visualize the GFF files that I am creating. However, screen grabs of the viewer don't translate well to presentation slides and reports. Is there something similar around that might be a little less confusing when used in a presentation?
If your data is from one of the organisms in the UCSC genome database, you can upload your annotation (as BED, GTF, etc) as a custom track, modify the display using the "Configure" image function, and export as a PDF or Postscript file using "PDF/PS" function at the top of the browser page.
Have you tried exporting from IGV as SVG? Then you should be able to resize and still keep
crisp graphics and fonts.
From your description, it sounds like you're actually taking a screen grab with external software. If that's the case, you'll likely have better results using the built-in utility to save a screenshot. Just go to File -> Save Image ... (and then try SVG output.)
Not true--GBrowse can export SVG as well as pdf if the administrator has configured it to do so. While pdf export is still fairly rare (though not at all difficult to add), SVG export is quite common.
I guess the developers always have better answers than me. You can also try standalone biographics rendering GFF, I found that pretty good, too.
