GMOD Americas 2011

GMOD Americas 2011 is now over. Almost 60 people participated in one or more events during the week.

The newly offered Introduction to GMOD session introduced the GMOD big picture to over 20 attendees. The two-day March 2011 GMOD Meeting featured group discussions, Eric Stone's talk on the challenges of the Drosophila Genetic Reference Panel, and 15 other talks on project status and direction, component updates, and best practices. The Satellite Meetings were more popular than ever before, with over 20 people participating. Finally, 2011 GMOD Spring Training course offered 25 participants five days of hands-on training on installing, configuring and using popular GMOD components. This GMOD course featured new sessions on InterMine and SOBA as well as updated sessions on Apollo, Chado, Galaxy, GBrowse, GBrowse_syn, JBrowse, MAKER, and Tripal. Feedback on the events will be published shortly.

Don't despair if you missed this event as the the next GMOD meeting is scheduled for October, 2011 at the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research (OICR) in Toronto, Canada. OICR was the site of the July 2008 GMOD Meeting and is the home of the BioMart and GBrowse projects.

See you in October,

Scott Cain and Dave Clements
