GMOD Online Training 2014
Monday 19th May - Friday 23rd May 2014
GMOD Online Training offers an introduction to, and training in, the bioinformatics software offered by the Generic Model Organism Database project. Over five days, participants will learn about GMOD's free, open-source tools for visualising, storing, and disseminating genetic and genomic data.
Components covered in the course include:
- Chado database schema
- Galaxy analysis pipeline
- GBrowse and JBrowse genome browsers
- MAKER and MAKER-P genome annotation pipelines
- Tripal website generator and database interface
- WebApollo manual gene annotation software
The course is taught by experienced instructors and developers with deep knowledge of the tools and their applications.
By the end of the course, participants will have hands-on experience of setting up and using core components needed for a modern genomics project.
Unlike previous GMOD schools, this course will be conducted entirely online. We are currently assessing different software solutions for online lectures and interactions; if you have any experience (good or bad) with such software, please feel free to tell us about it!
