We introduce BPG, a framework for generating publication-quality, highly-customizable plots in the R statistical environment.


This open-source package includes multiple methods of displaying high-dimensional datasets and facilitates generation of complex multi-panel figures, making it suitable for complex datasets. A web-based interactive tool allows online figure customization, from which R code can be downloaded for integration with computational pipelines.


BPG provides a new approach for linking interactive and scripted data visualization and is available at or via CRAN at
