Genes involved in biological pathways are often collocalised in gene clusters, the comparison of which can give valuable insights into their function and evolutionary history. However, comparison and visualization of gene cluster similarity is a tedious process, particularly when many clusters are being compared. Here, we present clinker, a Python based tool and clustermap.js, a companion JavaScript visualization library, which used together can automatically generate accurate, interactive, publication-quality gene cluster comparison figures directly from sequence files.
