Partition

Eukaryotic genomes often consist of multiple chromosomes, which are distinct sequences. However, they are often visualized as one contiguous sequence by placing them end-to-end of each other. Some visualizations, especially when comparing genomes, treat chromosomes as separate elements. While different chromosomes are the most common reason to display a sequence in separate parts, one could imagine partitioning a sequence based on other factors too, such as partitioning it in equally sized subsequences to show the entire sequence in multiple rows (similar to space-filling layouts).

Contiguous

Segments of the genome, typically individual chromosomes, are joined together end-to-end.

Segregated

Segments of the genome, typically individual chromosomes, are displayed separately.
