# Tool to show DNA sequence and allowing upload of own graph data

Background

We want to be able to load (or request) data for a genome including the sequence and gene annotation (bacteria). Then, we want to load our own annotation which should be displayed as a line plot:

position score
1        5
2        6
etc.


Where each position corresponds to the position in the genome (i.e. FASTA). Something like this:

Question

Is there a tool that can load a genome sequence, gene annotation, and a position ~ score file, which can be displayed as a line plot?

• Welcome to the site. In order to suggest a good alternative could you comment what do you need this tool for? Why do you need to display the gene annotation? What is the problem with IGV ? (I found the sentence a bit confusing, perhaps if you rephrase it I'll understand it)

• I thought I was clear regarding what I need it for: uploading genome + annotation + own data (position + score). Why gene annotation? Because we want to look whether the the line plot we upload differs between genes and intergenic regions. Just similar as a GC plot beneath the genes and intergenic regions but then with own supplied scores per position. Indeed, I forgot a word in my sentence about IGV @Llopis Oct 11 '18 at 13:32
• I don't find this question useful. It only helps people who find IGV ugly. Also you don't seem to have researched for other options like IGB. Have a nice day!

• A local tool is fine, with upload I meant uploading it to a tool (perhaps not the best word choice). The screenshot is from a tool which only visualizes a Listeria genome (no other bacteria), but I liked the interface. Currently I'm trying to use IGB @terdon Oct 11 '18 at 15:07
