Publishing sequence traces
Following our request for tips for publishing high-quality figures incorporating sequence traces, Tom Schwei and Anne Stover at DNASTAR pointed out that researchers using either a Mac or a PC can cut and paste from their Lasergene SeqMan sequence alignment software into Adobe Illustrator and get very high quality EPS files for publication. This particular sequence viewer allows stretching and zooming in on the sequence traces and as a consequence it is important initially to paste the clip into a vector graphics program like Illustrator and not a photo editing program like Adobe Photoshop. We have determined that there are also open-source and freely available trace viewers and vector graphics programs for those who want to work out how to use them. We would be pleased to continue the discussion of publishing optimal traces on our blog (http://blogs.nature.com/ng/freeassociation/). MA
