DNAPLOTTER circos tool


DNAPlotter is a collaborative project between Jemboss and Artemis. It makes use of the existing circular plot in Jemboss and the Artemis sequence libraries.

The DNAPlotter is interactive. The sections below describe how the circular / linear plot can be altered and enhanced to arrive at the best view.


  • Artemis – a DNA sequence viewer and annotation tool
  • ACT – a DNA sequence comparison viewer
  • BamView – interactive display of read alignments in BAM data files

DNAPlotter can be used to generate images of circular and linear DNA maps to display regions and features of interest. The images can be inserted into a document or printed out directly. As this uses Artemis it can read in the common file formats EMBL, GenBank and GFF3.
