A python package for plotting genomic elements in a genome browser style
gelviz: A python python package for plotting genomic elements.
gelviz is a python package for plotting a wide range of genomic elements in a genome browser-like fashion. It comes with basic plotting functions that can be used for plotting different kind of genomic elements.
The following example was created using published genomics and epigenomics data from 10.5281/zenodo.4557352. The data originates from the publication F. Haller, M. Bieg, R. Will, et al.. Enhancer hijacking activates oncogenic transcription factor NR4A3 in acinic cell carcinomas of the salivary glands. Nature Communications volume 10, Article number: 368 (2019)
Please check the jupyter notebook for details on how the above figure was created.
This package was implemented during my time at the German Cancer Research Center in the group of Theoretical Bioinformatics headed by Prof. Dr. Roland Eils, where i was part of the core bioinformatics team of the Heidelberg Institute of Personalized Oncology (HIPO). Further refinment and final upload to PyPI was done during my time at Charite, Universitaetsmedizin Berlin, Berlin Institute of Health (BIH) in the Department of Digital Health headed by Prof. Roland Eils.
