GBrowse PAG 2010 Workshop
January 9-13, 2010
Plant and Animal Genome Conference
San Diego, California, USA
This was be a hands-on tutorial on how to install and use the GBrowse genome browser.
Beginner to Intermediate: Students should be comfortable performing simple system administration tasks like stopping and starting services.
GBrowse is sufficiently easy to install that a biologist can easily set up and configure a GBrowse server after the initial hurdles of learning about configuration options and file formats are overcome. This class is intended to help them over those hurdles.
Prerequisite Software and Conference PCs
Prerequisite software for GBrowse will be pre-installed on the conference PCs in the classroom area of the California Room. Participants using these PCs will be able to setup and configure GBrowse during the workshop.
After the workshop, workshop materials and a VMware system image with GBrowse prerequisite software pre-installed will be linked to from this page. You can use VMware image to walk through the material presented at this workshop.
