Heather L. Merk, The Ohio State University
In the first video, Dr. Merk answers the following questions: (1) What is a genome browser?, (2) Where can I find the tomato genome browser?, and (3) What kinds of information can I see and where does it come from?
In the second video, Dr. Merk demonstrates the use of the tomato genome browser to identify molecular markers linked to bacterial spot resistance.
Note: After this seminar was presented, a new set of annotations (ITAG2) was released. These new annotations do not alter the function of the genome browser, but can be used for more up-to-date information.
