GMOD Americas 2011
GMOD Americas 2011 is an 8 day gathering of the GMOD Community featuring a community meeting,
satellite meetings, and a GMOD school. If you are looking to exploit (or just get a handle on) your recent
or coming datasets, please consider attending one or more events at GMOD Americas 2011.
GMOD is a collection of open source software components for managing, visualizing and annotating
biological data. It is also an active community of biologists and developers addressing common
challenges with a shared tool set.
Two full days of presentations & discussion on GMOD components, best practices, and project direction,
featuring GMOD users and developers. New, potential, and veteran users are encouraged to attend. A
special project overview session will be held the night before to introduce new and potential users to the
One day of informal special interest group / birds-of-a-feather meetings where GMOD Community
members discuss and work on topics of common interest.
A five-day hands on course on GMOD component installation, configuration and usage. The course will
cover many popular components, including annotation tools (MAKER, Apollo), visualization tools
(GBrowse, JBrowse, GBrowse_syn), database systems (Chado, InterMine, Tripal), analysis & data
integration (Galaxy, GFF3).
