Re: [Gmod-ajax] JBrowse conference call, December 12th, 2pm Pacific
Good to talk with you! Here are the minutes from the meeting.
Rob reports that he will be giving a JBrowse presentation at PAG.
Scott says the GMOD meeting in April is right after the BioCuration
meeting in Georgetown. Gregg and Ed will be at the BioCuration
meeting, so maybe they can just stay for the GMOD meeting.
Gregg asked Tyra about how she is using JBrowse at NHGRI. Tyra says
she is using JBrowse for a novel genome they are sequencing.
Tyra had a question about JBrowse's current behavior when lists of
tracks to display are specified in the URL (and passed into the
Browser constructor as the 'tracks' parameter). Currently, that
passed parameter overrides the list of displayed tracks in the user's
cookie, there was some discussion about whether the two lists should be
unioned instead, rather than one overriding the other. The
conclusion was that this might be too complex.
Tyra also had a use case for displaying the genotypes of polymorphisms
in the genome. JBrowse doesn't currently have functionality for doing
this; there was discussion about GBrowse's allele_tower glyph, which
sounds like it does this. Some methods for accomplishing this in a
JBrowse installation were discussed; the feature roadmap for JBrowse
includes giving it the ability to use GBrowse glyphs in some fashion,
and that should help with this.
Gregg and Ed outlined for Tyra a bit about some of the things that
they are working on the WebApollo branch, such as context menus and
other experimental features, some of which they hope to role into the
main JBrowse branch.
Ian will be giving a talk at a European bioinformatics meeting next
Rob is going to be starting as the primary JBrowse developer in
January 9, 2012, 2pm PST
In future, could you cc the announcements to my assistant, [hidden email]?
