[BioC] ChromoViz does not work

Hi Michael,

well, I guess that's the meaning of the "open development" clause in the 
FAQs "What is Bioconductor?": Bioconductor is an open source and open 
development software project ...

Apart from some minimal formal standards, there is no centralized 
package reviewing or QC authority - it is done in a decentral manner by 
the users via their feedback on this mailing list and "by voting with 
their feet".

Note that there are a number of nice facilities for plotting data along 
chromosomes in the geneplotter package.

  Best wishes
