GMOD is a collection of interoperable open source software components for
managing, visualizing and annotating biological data. GMOD incorporates
many widely used tools, including GBrowse and JBrowse for genome browsing,
InterMine and BioMart for data mining, Galaxy and Ergatis for workflow,
Chado for data management, GBrowse_syn and CMap for comparative genomics,
plus many other tools (Apollo, MAKER, Pathway Tools, Textpresso, ...). GMOD
is also an active community of researchers and developers addressing common
challenges in exploiting their data. If you are struggling to fully exploit
your data then please consider attending GMOD Europe 2010.
Please let us know if you have any questions, and we hope to see you in
Scott Cain and Dave Clements
