Question: Gviz question

Hi Alex, The missing rtracklayer import should be fixed now, please install the latest Gviz version (0.99.2). Thanks for the hint. In the devel branch the other packages and their name spaces are a bit of a moving target and it is sometimes hard to keep up with changes... For showing multiple chromosomes in one plot you would have to make use of the 'add' argument of the plotTracks function, and create the necessary trellis yourself. You'd have to use grid's viewport functionality, though. Base graphics layout or mfcol/mfrow will not work here. Here is a little dummy example: chroms <- c("chr1", "chr2", "chr3", "chr4") maTrack <- AnnotationTrack(range=GRanges(seqnames=chroms, ranges=IRanges(start=1, width=c(100,400,200,1000)), strand=c("+", "+", "-", "+")), genome="mm9", chromosome="chr1", name="foo") mdTrack <- DataTrack(range=GRanges(seqnames=rep(chroms, c(10, 40, 20, 100)), ranges=IRanges(start=c(seq(1,100,len=10), seq(1,400,len=40), seq(1, 200, len=20), seq(1,1000, len=100)), width=9), values=runif(170)), data="values", chromosome="chr1", genome="mm9", name="bar") mgTrack <- GenomeAxisTrack() midTrack <- IdeogramTrack(genome="mm9", chromosome="chr1") ncols <- 2 nrows <- length(chroms)%/%ncols grid.newpage() pushViewport(viewport(layout=grid.layout(nrows, ncols))) for(i in seq_along(chroms)){ pushViewport(viewport(layout.pos.col=((i-1)%%ncols)+1, layout.pos.row=(((i)-1)%/%ncols)+1)) plotTracks(list(midTrack, mgTrack, maTrack, mdTrack), chromosome=chroms[i], add=TRUE) popViewport(1) } I added a section to the vignette explaining how to do this. It may become useful at some point to add a high-level function that does all of this automatically, but at this stage I think it is best to keep the package as flexible as possible.
