Abstract: Bioinformatics visualization is an important approach to exploit the information behind the massive biological data.In view of the challenges like massive data size,accurate visualization effect and diversified visualization requirements,we presented a bioinformatics visualization software based on SVG,called SBV (SVG for Bioinformatics Visuali-zation).SBV takes advantages of scalability of SVG and customizable performance form of DOM and CSS to draw a variety of bioinformatics maps.It is a maneuverable integrative bioinformatics visualization platform supporting most of existing bioinformatics visualization requirements.The software has been open source in Github,which provides good foundation for the further development.

Key words: Bioinformatics,Visualization,SVG,Chromosome map
