SBOL Visual:

Does your software tool support SBOL Visual 2.0.0 glyphs?
If so, let us know by e-mailing the SBOL Editors.
We would like to update our SBOL Applications webpage to inform our community on the latest tools that support SBOL Visual 2.0.0 glyphs.

If you support SBOL Visual glyphs in your software tool but have not updated to 2.0 glyphs, please consider doing so.
Unlike SBOL Visual 1.0.0, version 2.0 was expanded to include not only nucleic acid components but also molecular species and functional interactions as well.
To view and download SBOL Visual 2.0 glyphs, click here.
We provide sample visual glyphs supported in PDF, SVG, and PNG.
There is a Quick Introduction to SBOL Visual 2.0 that is provided here.
