learn how to access tomato genome data through the generic genome browser and how to find your favourite gene and visualise various annotations (http://solgenomics.net/gbrowse/).
In this tutorial we will show how the tomato genome data can be accessed through the generic genome browser. We will describe the various annotations that are visualized in the browser and show you how to find your favorite gene and obtain detailed information about it. We will also take a peek at the potato genome browser and briefly look at the similarities and differences between these two browsers.
Instruction movieThe GBrowse instruction movie comes in two parts and can be viewed here (part 1) and here (part 2).
note: The tutorial is based on the tomato ITAG assembly version 1.0 while the tutorial exercise is based in the ITAG 2.31 assembly. However, the tutorial will still be a good starting point to learn how-to use gbrowse.
