News/Aug 2009 GMOD Meeting Report
The August 2009 GMOD Meeting was held 6-7 August, 2009 in Oxford, UK, immediately following the 2009 GMOD Summer School - Europe. It was the first GMOD meeting outside North America and it was an excellent way to finish GMOD Europe 2009. The meeting was attended by ~45 people representing almost 30 different organizations. The meeting report and links to presentations are now available on the August 2009 GMOD Meeting page. There were 17 presentations by GMOD users, developers, and project staff.
- SAM and SAMtools: file formats and programs for compact representation of Next Generation Sequencing data, and a talk on using SAM/SAMtools in GBrowse.
- An RDF implementation of data from a Chado database.
- Reports from 2 power GBrowse users, the CBRG at Oxford, and Bayer CropScience
- New Perl and Java middleware packages for Chado.
Please take a look at the meeting report for an update on what's going on in the GMOD community.
Finally, I'd like to thank the Computational Biology Research Group (CBRG) at the University of Oxford for hosting and financially supporting GMOD Europe 2009. We could not have done this without you.
