Circular Genome Viewer

Accessing the Circular Genome Viewer on the PATRIC Website

Each Organism on PATRIC has an Organism Landing Page. To get to this page at the Genus level, select your Genera of interest from the Organisms tab on the PATRIC homepage. The phylogeny of each Landing Page is listed across the top of the page. Once on the Genera Landing Page, you may access the Circular Genome Viewer by drilling down in one of the following ways to either the Genome or the Feature level:

  • Select the Genomes tab, select your Genome of interest from the table, and click on the Genome icon from the green action bar. This will take you to the chosen Genome View Landing Page. Click on the Circular Viewer tab to access to the Tool.
  • Select the Genomes tab, select your Genome of interest from the table. Press and hold on the Genome icon from the green action bar. This will provide you a drop down selections. Select the Circular Viewer from the list to access to the Tool.
  • Select the Features tab, select your Genome of interest from the table, and click on the Genome icon from the green action bar. This will take you to the chosen Genome View Landing Page. Click on the Circular Viewer tab to access to the Tool.
  • Select the Features tab, select your Genome of interest from the table. Press and hold on the Genome icon from the green action bar. This will provide you a drop down selections. Select the Circular Viewer from the list to access to the Tool.

Circular Genome Viewer

The Circular Genome Viewer is a circular graphical representation of the alignment of genes and other genomic data.

Circular Genome Viewer Features and Functionality

Circular Genome Viewer Main Window:

  • mouse over or mouse click on a contig in the circular graph to view the genome information.
  • mouse over or mouse click on a feature in the circular graph to view the feature information.

Available Tracks Panel

  • The Available Tracks Panel on left lists all available tracks in the circular viewer.
  • You may click on the Eye icon to show/hide the tracks.
  • The color palettes in front of each track name are provided for you to change the foreground color and/or background color to the colors of your choice.

Adding Custom Tracks and Uploading Your Own Data

  • You may add custom tracks by selecting feature type, strand and keywords to show genes of interest.
  • You may upload your own data to display your data as Tile, Line, Histogram, or Heatmap plot
