Demo: JBrowse genome browser

We present an introduction to the JBrowse genome browser using a preconfigured VirtualBox appliance that attendees will be able to use with their own computers to participate. We will cover installing and configuring JBrowse for a variety of common data formats including FASTA, GFF3, BAM, BigWig, VCF, and CRAM. We will also cover setting up JBrowse Connect, a server-side component for integrating computational analysis resources such as Galaxy into your JBrowse instance, and review new features such as the Apollo genome curation tool, the human genome data release, and JBrowse 2, which will see its first official release shortly before the workshop.
