Ryan Dale posted 4 years ago a wonderful answer to the question of how to start your own chromosome plots using Python's Matplotlib Visualize Chromosome With Python ?.
I am migrating from Perl to Python and have been bashing my head for 3 days trying to add extra lines and gene annotations to Ryan's code, so that the extra gene "tracks" appear below each corresponding chromosome. I'd also like to zoom in to specific regions, and feed that as ranges in the code (i.e. from positions 1-100,000 in each chromosome). So far I have been unsuccessful :(
Anyone with matplotlib experience in here who could give me a hand?
While there are many chromosome plotters out there I would like to learn how to use Matplotlib and Python. I have seen many programmers do rather amazing publication quality figures with it.
