macrosyntR: Draw Ordered Oxford Grids and Chord Diagrams

Use standard genomics file format (BED) and a table of orthologs to illustrate synteny conservation at the genome-wide scale. Significantly conserved linkage groups are identified as described in Simakov et al. (2020) <doi:10.1038/s41559-020-1156-z> and displayed on an Oxford Grid (Edwards (1991) <doi:10.1111/j.1469-1809.1991.tb00394.x>) or a chord diagram as in Simakov et al. (2022) <doi:10.1126/sciadv.abi5884>. The package provides a function that uses a network-based greedy algorithm to find communities (Clauset et al. (2004) <doi:10.1103/PhysRevE.70.066111>) and so automatically order the chromosomes on the plot to improve interpretability.
