GMOD (http://gmod.org/) is a collection of interoperable open source
software components for managing, visualizing, annotating and
integrating biological, mostly genomic, data.  GMOD is also a
community of developers and users dealing with similar challenges.
GMOD is used in diverse contexts, with both emerging and established
model organisms.

GMOD Summer Schools (http://gmod.org/wiki/GMOD_Summer_School)
introduce new GMOD users to the GMOD project and feature several days
of hands-on training on how to install, configure and administer GMOD

The courses includes training on several GMOD components:
 * GBrowse - the widely used Generic Genome Browser
 * Chado - a modular and extensible database schema for biological data
 * Apollo - genome annotation editor
 * BioMart - biological data warehouse system
 * GBrowse_syn - a GBrowse based synteny viewer
 * JBrowse - a brand new Web 2.0 genome browser
 * Artemis-Chado Integration (Europe only)
 * MAKER - Genome annotation pipeline (Americas only)
 * Tripal - Web front end for Chado (Americas only)

***Please submit an application by the end of 6 April 2009, if you are
interested in attending. ***

Enrollment is limited to 25 students in each course.  If applications
exceed capacity (and we expect they will) then applicants will be
picked based on the strength of their application.  Applicants will be
notified of their admission status in mid-April.
