Tomato Genome Browser (GBrowse) for Plant Breeders Webinar

Plant Breeding and Genomics October 24, 2012 Print Friendly and PDF

Author:

Heather L. Merk, The Ohio State University

These webinars and the accompanying powerpoint slides at the bottom of the page (in pdf format), presented at the 2010 Tomato Disease Workshop, provide an overview of the tomato genome browser and demonstrate the use of the browser to identify molecular markers linked to bacterial spot resistance.

In the first video, Dr. Merk answers the following questions: (1) What is a genome browser?, (2) Where can I find the tomato genome browser?, and (3) What kinds of information can I see and where does it come from?

Note: After this seminar was presented, a new set of annotations (ITAG2) was released. These new annotations do not alter the function of the genome browser, but can be used for more up-to-date information.
