Hello fellow listers,

Does anybody know how to draw a horizontal idiogram?

I am trying to draw the banding of mouse chr1. Its just what you see
when you use the UCSC genome browser. No rocket science.

I installed the library 'idiogram' and yet the drawings do not look
like the G bands familiar to biologists. I want to make it obvious,
like the UCSC. Biologists (not necessarily bioinformaticians)
appreciate clarity.

Thank you,
