There are several GBrowse tutorials:

GBrowse Administration Tutorial
Step by step guide on how to configure and load data into GBrowse.
This tutorial
This tutorial was originally taught by Scott Cain at the 2009 GMOD Summer School - Europe. It walks you through setting up and running the MAKER genome annotation pipeline with some sample data. It provides a VMware image to work on, and relies heavily on the GBrowse Administration Tutorial.

This tutorial was also taught at the 2009 GMOD Summer School - Americas, but the notes and the VMware system image are for the Europe course.


This tutorial was taught using a VMware system image as a starting point. If you want to start with that same system, download and install the Starting image. There is also an Ending image for this tutorial, which contains the system after this tutorial (and the GBrowse_syn Tutorial) have been finished.

See VMware for what software you need to use a VMware system image, and for directions on how to get the image setup and running on your machine.

Important Note

This tutorial describes the world as it existed on the day the tutorial was given. Please be aware that things like CPAN modules, Java libraries, and Linux packages change over time, and that the instructions in the tutorial will slowly drift over time. Newer versions of tutorials will be posted as they become available.
