GMOD Europe 2010 was held 13-16 September, 2010 in Cambridge, UK. More than 60 people attended one or more of the events during the week. The September 2010 GMOD Meeting kicked off the week. Summaries of all 19 talks are now available on the September 2010 GMOD Meeting page. Talks were given by GMOD users, developers and staff, including:
* The Open Microscopy Environment: Open Informatics for Biological Imaging * InterMine: new Mines and new features * BioPivot * CpG Island and STR Annotator Plugins * Several web services and distributed resources talks:
o GMOD RPC API: The almost RESTful GMOD API o CRAWL (Chado RESTful Access Web-service Layer) o DAS Resource Overview and Update
Plus many other excellent presentations on topics ranging from Cosmic GBrowse to GMOD Sustainability and Organization.
Two Satellite Meetings followed the GMOD meeting. These were lively discussions with ~10 participants on two topics of interest to the GMOD community: * Post Reference Genome Tools * Community Annotation
There is also a writeup of the satellites by Mary Mangan on the OpenHelix blog.
The week finished with well-attended and back-to-back BioMart and InterMine workshops.
I'd like to thank the Cambridge Computational Biology Institute and the School of Biological Sciences Bioinformatics Training Facility for sponsoring and hosting the GMOD Europe 2010 events. I would also like to heap copious gratitude on Gos Micklem, Shelley Lawson, Dave Judge, Xose Fernandez, Syed Haider, Richard Smith, and Scott Cain for their work on making this event happen.
