Drawing Marker Positions Using Data Stored in a Database

WithSebastian Bassi

This program makes a graphical representation of a selected locus in five chromosomes of Arabidopsis thaliana. 1 The position data of the locus are stored in a database, so the program has to connect such a database and retrieve the data before plotting it. In this case we use MongDB as the database back-end. The drawing part is made by using the BasicChromosome class from Biopython.
