I did find an old thread (2003) in the mailing list describing someone attempting to do this in Gbrowse and the mention of a module called ideogram.pm. I had a look at Gbrowse and I'm not sure I need that level of complexity, I just need to produce a simple static PNG or JPG for reports/slides. Although if this is the only way then I'll give it a go. I couldn't find any further mention of ideogram.pm anywhere, is this part of GBrowse? I also found a mention of a glyph in Bio::Graphics for this type of thing but I can't find it again now.
