I am pleased to let the GMOD Community know that WebGBrowse is now
officially a part of GMOD. See Ram's announcement below.
Many, many thanks to Ram for making this happen.
WebGBrowse, a web interface for setting up GBrowse instances, is now a
part of GMOD. WebGBrowse enables biologists and bioinformaticians to
1. upload genome annotation information in GFF3 format,
2. configure display of each genomic feature through simple mouse
clicks on a web browser,
3. visualize the configured genome with the integrated GBrowse software.
There is no manual editing of GBrowse configuration files with
WebGBrowse. WebGBrowse relieves both the burden of installing GBrowse
and the need to learn the configuration semantics. It is also a good
way to learn the many GBrowse glyphs and how to configure them.
WebGBrowse is a good match for any organization that has users who
want to create their own GBrowse instances, but lack enough computing
resources and expertise to do so. WebGBrowse was developed at Indiana
University's Center for Genomics and Bioinformatics.
WebGBrowse can be downloaded and installed locally, or you can use the
WebGBrowse at CGB. The source is available at SourceForge. WebGBrowse
comes with a tutorial, FAQ, and a user and support mailing list.
