Apply now for the GMOD Summer School!

Learn how to get started with GMOD's toolkit for genetics and genomics, GMOD in the Cloud!

July 19-23, 2013; NESCent, Durham, North Carolina

The 2013 GMOD Summer School is the best way to get to grips with GMOD in the Cloud, GMOD's suite of genomic and genetic software. Over five days, attendees will learn how to install, configure, and run popular GMOD software for visualization, storage, and dissemination of genetic and genomic data. The following software is covered:

- Chado, a species-independent database schema covering many areas of genetic and genomic data;
- GBrowse, the ubiquitous genome browser;
- GBrowse syn, a synteny browser built on GBrowse;
- Galaxy, analysis and computation pipeline;
- JBrowse, genome browsing evolved;
- MAKER, automated annotation pipeline;
- Tripal, a slick web interface for displaying and editing data from Chado; and
- WebApollo, distributed community genome annotation tool (built on JBrowse).

There are additional sessions on setting up a GMOD in the Cloud virtual machine in the Amazon cloud, and common file formats.

Courses are taught by members of the software development teams, and there are work sessions in the evenings for participants to talk to the developers or apply what they have been taught to their own data.

For more information and to apply, visit There are some scholarship funds available for those from underrepresented minorities.

All applications should be in by June 10th. If you have any questions, please contact the GMOD help desk at [hidden email].

Hope to see you there!
