To analyse the vast amount of genome annotation data available today, a visual representation of genomic features in a given sequence range is required. We developed a C library which provides layout and drawing capabilities for annotation features. It supports several common input and output formats and can easily be integrated into custom C applications. To exemplify the use of AnnotationSketch in other languages, we provide bindings to the scripting languages Ruby, Python and Lua.
