I'm currently mapping out a genomic locus with Gviz, and I'm running into an issue in one of my sub-figures where the Genome Axis Track tick labels are mashing into each other:
It seems to have automatically decided to show ticks every 1kb due to the relatively short range being plotted (~5kb), but in order to prevent the labels overlapping it would be good if I could specify to only plot them every 2kb or similar.
The only graphical option I can find relating to tick resolution is
littleticks, which does the opposite of what I want. Is there any way to reduce the tick resolution rather than increasing it? If not, can anyone suggest a good alternative solution? I don't really want to alternate the tick labels above and below the axis unless there's no alternative, as that will interfere with some other annotations I want to add later.
