GMOD will have a strong presence again with a mixture of talks, poster, and workshops.



Genome Project 101: We’ve got an assembly! Now What?

Thursday, June 9, 4:00-6:00pm, Scott Cain, Dave Clements

This workshop will demonstrate open source bioinformatics tools from the GMOD project that transform unannotated genome assemblies into online resources that enable data analysis and integration. Generating annotations, visualizing the genome, saving into a web-accessible database, and analyzing, refining and integrating the data will be presented. The workshop is aimed at biologists and assumes no programming skills. There is no cost to attend this optional workshop, but registration is requested.

Comparative genomics with the generic synteny browser (GBrowse_syn): Configuration and display of various co-linearity data types.

Saturday, June 11, 10:30-12:00pm, Sheldon McKay

How to configure and use the example multiple sequence alignment data set installed with GBrowse_syn as well as other, more complex data sets from a MERCATOR alignment pipeline. Non-sequence alignment data derived from co-linear protein orthologs will also be presented. There is no cost to attend this optional workshop, but registration is requested.
