Graphical genome maps are widely used to assess genome features and sequence characteristics. The CGView (Circular Genome Viewer) software family is a popular collection of tools for generating genome maps for bacteria, organelles and viruses. In this review, we describe the capabilities of the original CGView program along with those of subsequent companion applications, including the CGView Server and the CGView Comparison Tool. We also discuss GView, a graphical user interface-enabled… CONTINUE READING
