Example Databases

A few "starter" databases have been installed for you. You can access them from within the virtual machine at http://localhost/fgb2/gbrowse, or from outside the virtual machine using http://host.machine:8081/fgb2/gbrowse, where "host.machine" is the DNS name or IP address of the computer that is hosting VirtualBox.

More starter databases can be installed by running the command line script "gbrowse_import_ucsc_db.pl". Genome builds are selected using the UCSC genome browser build name. For example, to load the human genome: gbrowse_import_ucsc_db.pl hg19 'H. sapiens genome (hg19), genes and DNA'
