Once I needed a similar tool to represent aflp data as a gel and I wrote the 
code to solve that issue. I haven't used that much because the project was 
cancelled due to external reasons, but the code worked. You can take a look 
If you have any problems with it, write me a line. I'm sure that it will be 
bugs and and the performance is not great, but it worked for me.
At least I hope you can look at how the image is build using matplotlib.
