JBrowse 2 is a new genome browser that is built using ReactJS. It has new features for structural variant visualization and comparative genomics with things like split views, synteny views, Circos views and more. We will demonstrate how to set up JBrowse 2 and show how new plugins can create custom views, custom tracks, or custom data adapters in JBrowse 2.

  • A wi-fi enabled laptop with a modern web browser.
  • Experience with Javascript a plus but not necessary.

I'm one of the core developers on the JBrowse team, where I've been mostly working on JBrowse 2. I'd love to answer any questions you have about JBrowse 2, or just talk shop about web development, UI design, etc. I'll be a trainer in two of the JBrowse 2 workshops.
