Applications are now being accepted for the 2012 GMOD Summer School
course, a five-day hands-on school aimed at teaching new GMOD
administrators how to install, configure and integrate popular GMOD
Components. The course will be held August 25-29 at the US National
Evolutionary Synthesis Center (NESCent) in Durham, North Carolina.


These components will be covered at the school:

    Apollo or WebApollo - genome annotation editor
    Chado - biological database schema
    Galaxy - workflow system
    GBrowse - genome viewer
    GBrowse_syn - synteny viewer
    GFF3 - genome annotation file format and tools
    InterMine - biological data mining system
    JBrowse - next generation genome browser
    MAKER - genome annotation pipeline
    Tripal - web front end to Chado databases

The deadline for applying is the end of July 9, 2012. Admission is
competitive and is based on the strength of the application,
especially the statement of interest. The 2011 school had over 70
applicants for the 25 slots. Any application received after deadline
will be automatically placed on the waiting list.

The course requires some knowledge of Linux as a prerequisite. The
registration fee will be $300 (only $60 per day). There will be a
limited number of scholarships available.
