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 "". Genome builds are selected using the UCSC genome browser build name. For example, to load the human genome: hg19 'H. sapiens genome (hg19), genes and DNA'
