on JBrowse at
2009 GMOD Summer School - Europe

JBrowse is a genome browser with almost entirely AJAX-based interfaces. JBrowse renders most tracks using client side JavaScript and JSON as its data transfer format. JBrowse is currently under development by the Ian Holmes Lab at UC Berkeley. It is expected to have a production release in 2009. Most development has been done by Mitch Skinner. JBrowse was formerly known as GBrowse 3. However, this name was changed to JBrowse to avoid confusion: JBrowse is an alternative to GBrowse, not a successor.
