Hello, I would like to plot a list of interesting genes (located on different chromosomes) on a genome. I extracted their genomic coordinates with biomaRt (see table below) and now I am looking for a way to send them all to some plotting function. So I have a matrix like this: chromosome_name start_position end_position strand band gene1 1 295038550 295099001 1 H6 gene2 2 8660648 8693244 -1 E3.1 gene3 X 880698 929632 -1 A3 gene4 4 84109214 84109545 1 C1.1 gene5 4 35964995 35982539 -1 C1.2 and now I want to plot all these genes on a genome to have a visual representation of their position. I've tried to do this with GenomeGraph, but it seems to allow only for extraction of all genes/transcripts etc. from a given region of a single chromosome, and not just from a user-supplied gene list. Could anyone please suggest a package/way to do this? thanks, jarek -- Jarek Bryk Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology August Thienemann Str. 2 | 24306 Pl?n, Germany tel. +49 4522 763 287 | bryk at evolbio.mpg.de

One option would be to output your gene/co-ordinates in wig file format and upload them to the UCSC genome browser where they could be visualized. Have a look at the UCSC documentation for info on how to do this. That said there's probably an easier way... Paul.

The prepareGenomePlot() function in the quantsmooth package can be used to do that.
