Customization Keys

The following keys can be used with the '--custom' option, which can be used with the cgview_comparison_tool.pl script and with the wrapper scripts build_blast_atlas.sh and build_blast_atlas_all_vs_all.sh. The values used must be consistent with those given below. For example, 'true' cannot be used when 'T' is expected. Colour values are given as rgb strings such as 'rgb(0,0,0)'.
