[dropcap]A[/dropcap]pplications are being accepted for an Advanced Topic Session on the use of the Generic Model Organism Database (GMOD) for genomic visualization, comprehension and analysis of genetic data. The GMOD Project hosts a collection of open source software tools for creating and managing genome-scale biological databases. GMOD is highly extensible and has a large collection of tools useful for a variety of genomic analysis. This session will provide a 3-day focused Workshop experience on the installation, usage and development of a subset of GMOD tools. Particular attention will be provided to the use of CHADO for genomic feature annotation, and JBrowse, GBrowse and WebApollo for for viewing, creating and editing genomic annotations in graphical environments.

Eligibility: Participation in any of the Advanced Topics session does not require attendance in the core Workshop curriculum, and participants in previous Workshops are welcome to attend. If you are interested in participating in this session, please Apply using the link at the top of this window.
