Vectorial drawing with the UCSC Genome browser and inkscape

Select a view in the UCSC genome browser. Export it (top menu) it as Encapsulated Postscript (EPS)

Import the EPS file in inkscape

'Ungroup' the objects and have fun.

That's it.

I'm sorry for you. I tested with inkscape shipped with linux ubuntu 11.04. See also: http://wiki.inkscape.org/wiki/index.php/Current_PDF_Support#PS_Import
