It's my first first-author paper so I'm a little bit excited but an article describing BRIG has been published in BMC Genomics. Please cite the BRIG paper if BRIG is used to generate figures for publications:
NF Alikhan, NK Petty, NL Ben Zakour, SA Beatson (2011) BLAST Ring Image Generator (BRIG): simple prokaryote genome comparisons, BMC Genomics, 12:402. PMID: 21824423
I've been wanting to make some changes to the BRIG program but time seems to be against me. I have to move onto other projects so any updates I make are in my free time. A lot of people have been giving me feedback and comments about the program (I really appreciate their feedback) and I've been trying to work through them. I will be releasing a development version with these changes soon. If *you* have any questions or comments, post them on one of the trackers on BRIG's SourceForge page: http://sourceforge.net/projects/brig/
You can download the source code from github.
