Beginner to Intermediate. Students should be comfortable performing simple system Linux administration tasks like stopping and starting services, and installing software. No prior knowledge of GBrowse or GBrowse_syn is required.
The tutorial is aimed at computer-savvy biologists and computer scientists working with syntenic data.
The session will include
- Loading data
The course will briefly touch on generating syntenic data, but it will not go into detail on different analysis options.
This will be a hands-on tutorial and attendees are strongly encouraged to bring their own laptop. We will provide a VMware virtual system image that will have most prerequesites pre-installed. Another option is for students to pre-install all prerequisites and datasets on their own system prior to class.
