I use the CGView Server for constructing circular genome maps. It is really a convenient tool for me to explore circular genome maps because it's interactive. I can search a certain region and it can automatically hover to that region. However, the job running on CGView Server will be deleted after 7 days. Are there any alternatives to CGView Server? Preferably something that's offline so I can save it for longer than 7 days. I've checked the website on CGView, but I think the java package for CGView is not interactive. Thanks in advance!

I've been using Unipro Ugene and Snapgene Viewer (not for circular genomes, but they both have the option).

Snapgene Viewer is more user-friendly, but I think Ugene might have more tools that are free (if you want to copy-paste pieces of DNA, for instance, you can't do that in Snapgene Viewer, it would require the paid or demo version of Snapgene)
