Abstract:Summary: ChromoWheel is an Internet browser application for generating whole-genome illustrations. It can be used to depict chromosomes, genes and relations between chromosomal loci. The circular layout of chromosomes is advantageous for showing relationships between different chromosomes, as the connecting line never crosses over a chromosome. All graphical image components are in the vector-based format Scalable Vector Graphics, which are highly scaleable and admit user interaction. ChromoWheel can either be run with user-provided data in the generic SFS format, or as a browser front-end for precompiled genomic data.Availability: http://chromowheel.cgb.ki.se

- The leading journal in its field, Bioinformatics publishes the highest quality scientific papers and review articles of interest to academic and industrial researchers. Its main focus is on new developments in genome bioinformatics and computational biology. Two distinct sections within the journal - Discovery Notes and Application Notes- focus on shorter papers; the former reporting biologically interesting discoveries using computational methods, the latter exploring the applications used for experiments.
