Dear Gviz Developers,

thank you for creating such a wonderful package.

 

I am working with the genome 'ce10', for which there is no cytoband data available at UCSC and therefore no IdeogramTrack is possible.

Now I would like to know, whether it is possible to place a title or label to the left of the GenomeAxisTrack , such that I could put the chromosome there, because else that information would be missing from the figure. 

Thanks for any suggestions!

Best,

Alex

Dear Alex,

This should work, with default scheme:

library(Gviz)

axisTrack <- GenomeAxisTrack(showTitle=TRUE, name="chr1",  background.title="lightgray", rotation.title=0)

plotTracks(axisTrack, from = 1e+06, to = 9e+06)

or with transparent background and tittle in dark grey:

axisTrack <- GenomeAxisTrack(showTitle=TRUE, name="chr1", fontcolor.title="#808080", rotation.title=0)
plotTracks(axisTrack, from = 1e+06, to = 9e+06)

Best

Robert
