    abstract = {Summary: The amount of gene and genome data obtained by
      next-generation sequencing technologies generates a need for
      comparative visualization tools. Complementing existing software
      for comparison and exploration of genomics data, genoPlotR
      automatically creates publication-grade linear maps of gene and
      genomes, in a highly automatic, flexible and reproducible way.
