WebApollo is a project that aims to provide similar functionality to Apollo in a client-server web-based environment.
Our overall goal is to develop a lightweight Web 2.0 infrastructure that will offer easy-to-use tools for collaborative genome annotation that allows users to view, create, and edit genomic annotations in a graphical environment. This includes the design and implementation of:
- a web-browser-based version of Apollo built on top of JBrowse
- full support for two-way client-server exchange of genome annotations
- an annotation tracking system designed to support collaborative genome research projects
The WebApollo project is a collaboration between Suzanna Lewis's group at LBNL (the Berkeley Bioinformatics Open-source Projects group, or BBOP), the JBrowse project in Ian Holmes' group at Berkeley, and Chris Elsik's group at University of Missouri.
This work is supported by an NIH grant (Lewis R01 GM080203).
