News/Tripal: A Web Front End for Chado

Jump to: navigation, search

Tripal is a new web front end for Chado databases and is now a part of GMOD. Tripal is a collection of Drupal modules initially developed by the Clemson University Genomics Institute (CUGI). Tripal is already powering several web sites, including the Marine Genomics Project and Fagaceae Genomics Web.

Tripal supports Drupal themes, page content and look and feel customization, materialized views, searching, and job management out of the box.

Tripal can be downloaded from the GMOD SVN repository. Tripal (already!) has an extensive User's Guide and a tutorial to help users install, configure and extend Tripal.

If you use or are considering using Chado, please take a look at Tripal.
