W349 The Generic Genome Browser: A Hands on Workshop for Installing, Configuring and Using Your Own GBrowse

Date: Sunday, January 15, 2012
Time: 1:30 PM
Room: California
Scott Cain , Ontario Institute for Cancer Research, Medina, OH
Tutorial Level

Beginner to Intermediate. Students should be comfortable performing simple system administration tasks like stopping and starting services.

Intended Audience

GBrowse is sufficiently easy to install that a biologist can easily set up and configure a GBrowse server after the initial hurdles of learning about configuration options and file formats are overcome. This class is intended to help them over those hurdles.

Prerequisite Software and Conference PCs

Prerequisite software for GBrowse will be pre-installed on the conference PCs in the classroom area of the California Room. Participants using these PCs will be able to setup and configure GBrowse during the workshop.

After the workshop, a VMware system image with GBrowse prerequisite software pre-installed will be made available on GMOD @ PAG page at GMOD.org. You can use this image to walk through the material presented at this workshop.
