I just noticed that Circos plots are now incorporated into Galaxy's
visualization methods which is awesome! However, I'm a bit lost as to what
kinds of data I can load into Circos and I cannot find much documentation,
so I hope you guys can help out.

1. I tested it using a bigWig and a BED file. Both were loaded nicely in
Circos, but I was surprised to see that the visualization of both files
looked exactly the same, i.e. both file types seemed to be interpreted as
histograms/coverage data. From the Circos plots I've seen in publications,
I assumed that BED files should be visualized as straight lines, indicating
genome regions (rather than a coverage). Am I doing anything wrong? Or,
rather, how should I modify the BED file so that its content is simply
interpreted as genomic regions?

2. In the Galaxy publication (www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2164/14/397),
"line data" is mentioned for displaying connecting lines in the center of
the circle - could you give me an example line of how this kind of data
needs to be formated?

It would be great to make much more use of Circster! Thanks a lot!

Best wishes,
