Sure it is. This extract comes from the docs of Bio::Graphics::Panel

" There are a large number of glyph types.  By default, each track will
be homogeneous on a single glyph type, but you can mix several glyph
types on the same track by providing a code reference to the -glyph
argument.  Other options passed to add_track() control the color and
size of the glyphs, whether they are allowed to overlap, and other
formatting attributes.  The height of a track is determined from its
contents and cannot be directly influenced."
