The Generic Model Organism Database Project

Welcome to the Generic Model Organism Database project, a collection of open source software tools for managing, visualising, storing, and disseminating genetic and genomic data.

Get Started

Read the GMOD overview for the big picture, or visit GMOD Components for a comprehensive list of GMOD tools. If GMOD looks promising for your needs, consider attending the next GMOD community meeting.

Get Support

GMOD support is available from several different sources. Support introduces each support option (this web site, GMOD Mailing Lists, Training and Outreach activities (including GMOD Schools), and the /GMOD Help Desk) and offers guidance on which one is the most appropriate for your question.

Get Involved

As an open source project GMOD relies on the donation of time and software by groups and individuals. Contribution of new tools, adoption of existing ones, and improving the documentation are all welcome. Existing and potential users are encouraged to provide feedback via mailing lists or the help desk. You can also attend project meetings.
