Persisting problems / bugs / feature requests:

  • The restriction map feature is not fully implemented. Sites will be drawn at their correct positions but the labels may still overlap and if too many sites are found, the overlapping cannot be resolved correctly. We recommend not to exaggerate the use of this feature. Trying to display the restriction sites of 10 different enzymes that all cut 40 times will certainly produce unreadable maps.
  • OGDRAW cannot interpret special characters in gene names. Those must be removed from the GenBank file.
  • Very long species names can overlap with the GC content graph. In such a case, we recommend to generate a vector graphic and edit the map in Adobe Illustrator or CorelDraw. For details see our FAQ section.
