BCC2020 is online, global, and affordable. The meeting and training are now done, and the CoFest is under way.

The 2020 Bioinformatics Community Conference brings together the Bioinformatics Open Source Conference (BOSC) and the Galaxy Community Conference into a single event featuring training, a meeting, and a CollaborationFest. Events run from July 17 through July 25, and is held in both the eastern and western hemispheres.

Main Text of Abstract

Generating publication ready plots to display multiple genomic tracks can pose a serious challenge.
Making desirable and accurate figures requires considerable effort. This is usually done by hand or
by using a vector graphic software. pyGenomeTracks (PGT) is a modular plotting tool that easily
combines multiple tracks and plots them in a highly customizable, publication ready layout. It can
generate a variety of data formats which are required by many journals. Importantly, PGT enables a
reproducible and standardized generation of images, which can be integrated in more general
