Arthropod Genomics Symposium}}   Arthropod Genomics Symposium 2011

Kansas City, Missouri, United States
June 9-12

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


Genome Project 101
Thursday, June 9, 4:00-6:00pm, Scott Cain, Dave Clements
This workshop will demonstrate how to use open source bioinformatics tools from the GMOD project to transform assembled genomic information from a sequencing center into online resources that enable analysis and data sharing and integration. The workshop will cover generating genomic annotations with MAKER, visualizing it with GBrowse and/or JBrowse, saving it into a web-accessible Chado database, analyzing and refining it with Galaxy, and integrating it with other data in Chado and BioMart. The workshop will be an overview and assumes no programming experience. The workshop will be accompanied by example data, step by step instructions, and a starting virtual system image (VMware) that can be used by participants after the workshop to reproduce every step shown in the workshop.
Saturday, June 11, 10:00-11:30am, 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.
