You can find at this adresse http://locus.jouy.inra.fr/micado a new 
Java program to show the Chromosom of Bacillus subtilis and the contigs
mapped on it, in a circular view. 
If you choose a region on the chromosom, the ChromosomeViewer will open
a new window to show the region 10 degrees around, when you choose a
contig there is a representation of public sequences whose create the
contig. Then you can select a sequence and a new Applet will be started
to show you a graphical representation of the sequence annotations (For
instance this applet is Beta version)

The Chromosome Viewer interface an Oracle Database (Micado) which
contain sequences from genbank/embl for Microbial organisms plus the
Subtilist informations for the B.subtilis contigs. This version deals
with a C socket server to get information from the DataBase but we plan
to interface the DB throw Corba, soon as possible.
