There will be GMOD workshops at two major conferences in June 2009:

SMBE 2009
Annual Meeting of the Society for Molecular Biology and Evolution (SMBE 2009)
June 3-7, 2009
Iowa City, Iowa
Database Tools for Evolutionary Genomics: An introduction to GMOD software for managing, annotating and visualizing genomic data

Saturday, June 6, 2:30-5:00pm
This workshop will cover some of the most widely used GMOD software components, including the Chado database, the GBrowse genome browser, the CMap comparative map browser, and the Apollo genome curation tool. The workshop will also cover, in some depth, the GBrowse_syn comparative genomics viewer, and the MAKER genome annotation pipeline for eukaryotes. Speakers (Ben Faga, Sheldon McKay, Mark Yandell, and Dave Clements) will address both existing functionality and ongoing developments specifically targeted at better supporting evolutionary data and research. No knowledge of programming is necessary.

Arthropod Genomics Symposium
3rd Annual Arthropod Genomics Symposium
June 11 - 14, 2009
Kansas City, Missouri
Chado Databases and Integration with GMOD Tools

Pre-Symposium Workshop - Thursday, June 11, 4:30-6:30 p.m.
Scott Cain, Ontario Institute for Cancer Research, will provide training on Chado database design, data loading and exporting, and integration with other GMOD tools such as Apollo and GBrowse. Particular emphasis will be given to comparative genomics tools. There is no cost to attend this optional workshop, but registration is requested.

Please let Dave (SMBE) or Scott (AGS) know if you have any questions about the workshops.
