GMOD is the Generic Model Organism Database project, a collection of interoperable open-source software components for annotating, visualizing, managing and analyzing biological data. GMOD is also an active community of software developers and biologists addressing common challenges with their data.
The GMOD suite includes widely used tools such as GBrowse and JBrowse (and WebGBrowse) for genome browsing, Apollo, Canto and MAKER for genome annotation, GBrowse_syn and CMap for comparative genomics visualization, Chado, BioMart and InterMine for data integration, management, and querying, and Galaxy and Ergatis (and ISGA) for data analysis.
Please register online at EventBrite. Early bird registration ends May 30th.
