Another genome browser framework

Jul 19, 2011 at 4:00 PM

I just listened the MBF introduction in vienna ISMB 2011 conference, and it's really beautiful. And I want to talk to you in face during poster session, but I did not find somebody in front of your poster...

Actually, we are now developing a genome browser framework for annotation visulization: http://www.abrowse.org/. Moreover, user can write on the genome instantly besides browsing. And built-in query system and BioMart are all supported for users to fetch bulk dataset.

Hope to learn from you. Thank you very much.

You attended the presentation done by Simon Mercer. His Microsoft email address is simon.mercer@microsoft.com. Feel free to include myself (Rick Benge) in the correspondence. I am the community program manager for MBF. My email address is a-rickbe@microsoft.com. There are several programs and additions that use MBF - you may have seen GenoZoom2 at his presentation. You can get additional information from this primary link http://research.microsoft.com/en-US/projects/bio/mbf.aspx but feel free to ask questions on our discussion area. Thanks for your interest.

Hello Wang,

Thanks for your interest in MBF, I'm sorry I missed you at the poster. I would be very interested in learning more about your project, and if there is any way in which MBF can assist you. As you know from the poster, we have a prototype genome browser built on top of MBF and which will be released in the coming months.

Please fell free to email me with more details, and we can discuss,

Many thanks,

Simon Mercer
