Bio::Graphics::RendererI(3) A renderer for the Bio::Graphics class that


# Get a renderer somehow, called $renderer
# create a new panel and render contents a feature collection onto it
my $config = new ConfigIO( $config_file )->getConfig();
my $features = $data_provider->getCollection();
my ( $tracks_rendered, $panel ) = $renderer->render( $features, $prefs );


Renderer of Bio::SeqFeature::CollectionIs (collections of features) onto a Bio::Graphics::Panel using a Bio::Graphics::ConfiguratorI for general and track-specific rendering options.

           Bio::Graphics::Panel (if no panel is given, one will be
           created), using the given Bio::Graphics::ConfiguratorI for general

 Returns : In a scalar context returns the number of tracks rendered.
           In a list context, returns a two-element list containing
           the number of features rendered and the panel.
