The fundamental goal of this repo was to create something quick and reproducible to find large regions of similarity between highly related plasmids - like those in an outbreak.
roundabout uses blast to find regions of similarity (as opposed to groups of genes that would be required for synteny), and then assigns those regions a color. Those regions and colors are then visualized via circos.
