The Generic Genome Browser (GBrowse) is a genome [[Visualization|viewer]] and is [[GMOD]]'s most popular [[GMOD Components|component]]. For a demo of its features, see [http://wormbase.org/db/gb2/gbrowse/c_elegans/ WormBase], [http://flybase.org/cgi-bin/gbrowse/dmel FlyBase], or [http://projects.tcag.ca/cgi-bin/duplication/dupbrowse/human_b35 Human Genome Segmental Duplication Database] and  [[GMOD_Users|others]].

* Simultaneous bird's eye and detailed views of the genome.
+
Easily installed via the cpan shell:
* Scroll, zoom, center.
+
  <span class="enter">sudo cpan</span>
* Use a variety of [[GBrowse Configuration HOWTO#Glyphs and Glyph Options|premade glyphs]] or create your own.

* Attach arbitrary URLs to any annotation.
+
* Order and appearance of tracks are customizable by administrator and end-user.
+
* Search by annotation ID, name, or comment.
+
* Supports third party annotation using [[GFF]] formats.
+
* Settings persist across sessions.
+
* DNA and [[GFF]] dumps.
+
* Connectivity to different databases, including [[BioSQL]] and [[Chado]].
+
* Multi-language support.
+
* Third-party feature loading.
+
* Customizable [[GBrowse Plugins|plug-in]] architecture (e.g. run [[wp:BLAST|BLAST]], dump & import many formats, find oligonucleotides, [[PrimerDesigner.pm|design primers]], create restriction maps, edit features)

==GBrowse Versions ==
+
Which gets all of the prereqs that aren't installed on the machine.
  
'''GBrowse 1.X''' (currently 1.70) is the older series that has been in use since 2002. It is recommended for applications which use a single database only and which must support legacy browsers.
+
=Tutorial=
  
'''GBrowse 2.0''' is a rewrite of the original GBrowse to add dynamic updating via AJAX and a smoother user experience. In addition, it provides administrators with the ability to attach a different genome database to each GBrowse track, making it much easier to manage and update tracks. It also provides a distributed backend system of "slave" renderers, allowing each track to be rendered in parallel on a different machine and significantly increasing performance. GBrowse 2.0 is considered stable,but does not have full internationalization support. In addition, there may be issues with older browsers that do not support newer JavaScript features.

==Installation==
+
=Basic [[Chado]] Configuration (if we have time)=
  
GBrowse is [[Glossary#Perl|Perl]]-based. It can be installed using the standard Perl module build procedure, or automated using a network-based install script. In order to use the net installer, you will need to have Perl 5.8.6 or higher and the Apache web server installed. See the step-by-step instructions below for detailed instructions:
+
{{CPAN|Bio::DB::Das::Chado}} was installed when we created the image. Sample configuration files are available with GBrowse, and we'll get the sample Chado file:

There are many useful POD documents included with the distribution.  These are converted to HTML files when you install the package, and can be found in /gbrowse/docs/pod:
+
*Get rid of <tt>database = main</tt>

For other tracks, when zoomed way out (100kb or 1MB), performance can similarly suffer, with a decreasing "information" content.  Newer versions of GBrowse provide the ability to automatically generate density plots when zoomed out.  This functionality is available from Chado and {{CPAN|Bio::DB::SeqFeature::Store}} data adaptors.  To prepare our Chado database to do this semantic zooming, we need to run a script that comes with Bio::DB::Das::Chado:
  
{{GBrowse}}
+
  cd ~/Documents/Software/gbrowse-adaptors/Chado
 +
  svn update
 +
  perl bin/gmod_create_summary_statistics.pl
  
<references/>
+
and then add to the pythium.conf file, somewhere near the top (ie, not in the track definitions):
  
[[Category:GBrowse]]
+
  show summary = 99999
[[Category:GMOD Components]]
+
 
 +
==Enabling full text searching==
 +
 
 +
If we try searching for "<tt>gene 7.92</tt>", we'll get "Not Found" as a result, even though genemark-scf1117875582023-abinit-gene-7.92 does exist.  To look for partial strings, we need to enable full text searching.  To do so, we need to run another script that comes with Bio::DB::Das::Chado:
 +
 
 +
  perl /home/gmod/Documents/Software/gbrowse-adaptors/Chado/bin/gmod_chado_fts_prep.pl
 +
 
 +
This does several things (including poorly estimating how long it will take to finish), including creating materialized views, using a tool provided by [[gmod:Category:SGN|SOL Genomics Network (SGN)]].  In practice, it would be a good idea to read the documentation of <tt>gmod_materialized_view_tool.pl</tt> for information on keeping the view up to date.
 +
 
 +
We also have to tell GBrowse that this Chado database can now do full text searching, by adding this to the Chado database stanza:
 +
 
 +
  -fulltext 1
 +
 
 +
Now we can search for "<tt>gene 7.92</tt>" and we'll find our gene (plus it's mRNA and exons) and we can click on the gene to see it in GBrowse.

GBrowse Session

2011 GMOD Spring Training
8-12 March 2011
Scott Cain

{{#icon: GBrowseLogo.png|GBrowse|200|gmod:GBrowse}}


Prerequisites

Installed before using apt or cpan.

Install GBrowse

Easily installed via the cpan shell:

 sudo cpan
 cpan> install Bio::Graphics::Browser2

Which gets all of the prereqs that aren't installed on the machine.

Tutorial

Go to http://localhost/gbrowse2

Basic Chado Configuration (if we have time)

Bio::DB::Das::Chado was installed when we created the image. Sample configuration files are available with GBrowse, and we'll get the sample Chado file:

 wget http://gmod.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/gmod/Generic-Genome-Browser/trunk/contrib/conf_files/07.chado.conf -O pythium.conf


Some simple tweaks and additions:

  • Change description
  • Get rid of database = main
  • Remove or change examples (yeast examples don't help anybody)
  • Add initial landmark (initial landmark = scf1117875582023)

DB connection info

[annotation:database]
db_adaptor    = Bio::DB::Das::Chado
db_args       = -dsn dbi:Pg:dbname=chado
                -user gmod
                -inferCDS 1
                -srcfeatureslice 1
search options = default

Add a BAM data source

[bam_sample:database]
db_adaptor     = Bio::DB::Sam
db_args        = -fasta /var/www/gbrowse2/databases/pythium/scf1117875582023.fasta
                 -bam   /var/www/gbrowse2/databases/pythium/simulated-sorted.bam
search options = default

Add track defaults

[TRACK DEFAULTS]
glyph       = generic
database    = annotation
height      = 8
bgcolor     = cyan
fgcolor     = black
label density = 25
bump density  = 100

Note particularly the "database" entry--for most tracks we'll be using the annotation database, but the bam_sample data source will be available when we want it.

Add some tracks

                    $name .= " (@aliases)" if @aliases;

height       = 26
sixframe     = 1
label        = sub {shift->name . " reading frame"}
key          = CDS
citation     = This track shows CDS reading frames.

[repeats]

[CoverageXyplot]
feature        = coverage
glyph          = wiggle_xyplot

                return $f->attributes('M_UNMAPPED') ? 'red' : 'green';
                }

                return 'Read: '.$f->display_name.' : '.$f->flag_str;
                }
key           = Read Pairs

Add our new database to the GBrowse.conf

To let GBrowse know that there is a new database available, we have to add a few lines to GBrowse.conf. Add this to the bottom:

[pythium]
description   = Pythium ultimum
path          = pythium.conf

Updating SAMtools

The version of SAMtools may need to be updated. Get the samtools release:

 cd ~/Documents/Software
 wget -O samtools-0.1.13.tar.bz2 http://sourceforge.net/projects/samtools/files/samtools/0.1.13/samtools-0.1.13.tar.bz2/download
 tar jxvf samtools-0.1.13.tar.bz2
 cd samtools-0.1.13
 make

Install Bio::DB::Sam:

 sudo cpan
 cpan> install Bio::DB::Sam

when asked "Please enter the location of the bam.h and compiled libbam.a files:", answer:

 /home/gmod/Documents/Software/samtools-0.1.13

Add semantic zooming for the BAM tracks

Not doing this for very dense data (like BAM) is probably the number one performance killers for GBrowse; asking GBrowse to draw a track that has thousands of glyphs is time consuming (and ultimately, probably not very informative).

[Reads:5001]
feature        = coverage
glyph          = wiggle_density
height         = 15

[Pair:5001]
feature        = coverage
glyph          = wiggle_density
height         = 15
bgcolor        = purple

Add "show summary" functionality

For other tracks, when zoomed way out (100kb or 1MB), performance can similarly suffer, with a decreasing "information" content. Newer versions of GBrowse provide the ability to automatically generate density plots when zoomed out. This functionality is available from Chado and Bio::DB::SeqFeature::Store data adaptors. To prepare our Chado database to do this semantic zooming, we need to run a script that comes with Bio::DB::Das::Chado:

 cd ~/Documents/Software/gbrowse-adaptors/Chado
 svn update
 perl bin/gmod_create_summary_statistics.pl

and then add to the pythium.conf file, somewhere near the top (ie, not in the track definitions):

 show summary = 99999

Enabling full text searching

If we try searching for "gene 7.92", we'll get "Not Found" as a result, even though genemark-scf1117875582023-abinit-gene-7.92 does exist. To look for partial strings, we need to enable full text searching. To do so, we need to run another script that comes with Bio::DB::Das::Chado:

 perl /home/gmod/Documents/Software/gbrowse-adaptors/Chado/bin/gmod_chado_fts_prep.pl

This does several things (including poorly estimating how long it will take to finish), including creating materialized views, using a tool provided by SOL Genomics Network (SGN). In practice, it would be a good idea to read the documentation of gmod_materialized_view_tool.pl for information on keeping the view up to date.

We also have to tell GBrowse that this Chado database can now do full text searching, by adding this to the Chado database stanza:

 -fulltext 1

Now we can search for "gene 7.92" and we'll find our gene (plus it's mRNA and exons) and we can click on the gene to see it in GBrowse.

Evaluation

Please give us your comments on this session. We will ask for your feedback on each session and the course as a whole on the last day. Your comments will help guide the direction and content of future GMOD training and outreach efforts.
