JBrowse PSB 2020
In this workshop, we present an introduction to the JBrowse genome browser. We will cover new functionality of JBrowse 2, which is downloadable as a desktop application, and provides new modalities for genome browsing including complex structural variant views and Circos views. It also contains connections to datasets for human datasets and common model organisms using trackhubs and data APIs.
Relevance to PSB
JBrowse is sufficiently easy to install that a biologist, bioinformatics researcher, or bioinformatics developer can easily set up and configure a JBrowse server after the initial hurdles of learning about configuration options and file formats are overcome. This talk is intended to introduce the more advanced features of JBrowse, and provide a preview of the JBrowse 2 application.
