chromoMap is an R package that can be used to create interactive visualizations and annotation of entire chromosomes or chromosome regions of any living organism. It takes BED like files to specify the coordinates of the chromosomes and the annotations separately.chromosomes are rendered as a continuous composition of loci where you can hover on a locus to see detailed annotation for the genomic range of that locus. It is available on CRAN( version 0.2 ). It provides many features like:
- visualize different sets of chromosomes(polyploidy) on the same plot that can be used for cross-species or multi-sample comparisons.
- associate numeric data and create chromosome heatmaps or visualize group annotations
- add hyperlinks to your favorite database and many more like add labelings, change colors and embellish your plots.
