A new genome visualization tool is aiming to speed up high-throughput sequencing insights

Visualizing data resulting from high-throughput genome sequencing remains a challenge and a barrier to deeper exploration. A new open source tool, GraPhlAn, aims to help mitigate some of these issues. GraPhlAn is capable of producing compact and publication-quality representations of circular taxonomic and phylogenies with thousands of genomes.
