    Obtaining plots to compare genomic sequences and/or sources from GFF files.

    Last available version is 0.98. Get the PostScript version of “gff2ps Users Manual” (v0.96). A Web Server is also available at Institut Pasteur thanks to Catherine Letondal.

    A new section has been created: HTML HOWTOs for gff2ps. The first two HOWTOs were also added: “Comparing sources with gff2ps” and “Visualizing PostScript output from gff2ps”. We hope you will find them useful.

    gff2ps was used to obtain the six chromosome arm plots (X, 2L, 2R, 3L, 3R and 4) appearing in the “Coding content of the fly genome” map (figure 4), included as a poster in “The Genome Sequence of Drosophila melanogaster” [Adams et al. Science 287(5461):2185-2195(2000)].

    We have produced the map of the Human Genome with gff2ps. 22 autosomic, X and Y chromosomes were displayed in a big poster appearing as the figure 1 of “The Sequence of the Human Genome” [Venter et al. Science 291(5507):1304-1351 (2001)]. The single chromosome pictures can be accessed from here to visualize the web version of the “Annotation of the Celera Human Genome Assembly” poster.

    gff2ps has achieved another genome landmark. The mosquito genome annotation for five chromosome arms (2L, 2R, 3L, 3R and X) has been summarized into a two-sided five-pages foldout included as the figure 1 of “The Genome Sequence of the Malaria Mosquito Anopheles gambiae” [Holt et al. Science 298(5591):129-149 (2002)], available from the “Annotation of the Anopheles gambiae genome sequence” web page.
