Dear all,

Sorry to bother with at the first glance a basic question.
I am plotting pairwise synteny data between 5 species, and I managed to make a circos plot so that chromosomes of each species have different colors. What I additionally want to do is to draw above the chromosomes of each species an additional circos layer showing the name of the species (or whatever label).  Please see attached an example where I manually added an additional layer on top of only 1 species.
I'd appreciate if you can hint how is it possible to do for all species.

Thanks

Hi, you can do it by using highlights, wedge highlight specifically. Use this setting:
r0 = 1.1r 
r1 = 1.4r

Hi, thanks for suggestion
but how can I avoid having gaps between chromosomes? The maximum size of the highlight can be the size of the chromosome right?
