I'm plotting a BiomartGeneRegionTrack() and some DataTrack() using Gviz for a bunch of genes. This is going fine and the plots look great. I it would be really nice to have all the 5' ends of the genes of interest begin on the left hand side of the track. Is there a way to simply "flip" this track (or any track for that matter) when potting using plotTracks()?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated so I don't have to spend hours in illustrator doing this.

You want to plot all the genes on the reverse strand as if they are on the forward strand?

Hi, I believe you do not need to spend hours with Illustrator but few minutes with vignette :) plotTracks has argument ‘reverseStrand’, by setting it to TRUE will do what you want.

Hi Robert,

Thanks for the very helpful, albeit very snarky, response. I have spent hours with this vignette but did not remember this section.

For anyone who is interested these display parameters can be found in the settings {Gviz} section of the R documentation
