Dear All,

I want to draw a circular map for a mitochondrial genome. Could you please suggest programs that you know is powerful to do so? I want genes in the mitogenome to be marked by text and color blocks.

I know Circos can be used to draw a circular map but not sure if it can have different gene blocks marked by different colors. Examples/tutorial provided by Circos are all for different chromosomes, each of which can have a different color. What should I do in order to show different genes in the chromosome (i.e., my mitogenome) with different colors?

Thanks for any comments.

  1. Circos does have a recipe for a single chromosome

  2. There are many threads about circular genome visualization, e.g. here and here (use the search)

This program OrganellarGenomeDRAW might be useful http://ogdraw.mpimp-golm.mpg.de/

OrganellarGenomeDRAW (OGDRAW) - a tool for the easy generation of high-quality custom graphical maps of plastid and mitochondrial genomes. Lohse, M., Drechsel, O. and Bock, R.. Curr. Genet. (2007) 52:267-274.

Circos, Anvio and BRIG should all do what you want.

I've never used circos but have used the other 2 if you need more info. BRIG was developed by a guy in my lab.
