I am looking for a simple and free software for publication-quality visualization of genes in the correct scale. Essentially, I need to present a gene with all its introns and exons and promoter region. Also, I need to add some annotations to it. This can be done by powerpoint, but I thought there might be a better solution.

thanks

You can check out this site:

Haven't used it myself, so I don't know how user-friendly it is ...

Plasm comes to my mind.
Try here or here. There are also lots of other free programs that might work for this problem.
AFAIR Vector NTI isn't free anymore...but too long ago that I used it.

One must presume that long and short arguments contribute to the same end. - Epicurus
...except casandra's that belong to the funniest, most interesting and imaginative (or over-imaginative?) ones, I suppose.

That is....if she posts at all.

You can use USSC Genome broswer to export the gene structure as PostScript file, then edit it in illustrator or similar programs that can handle PostScript.
